Garden Bath, (After Mary Cassatt) Painting in Oil

Garden Bath, (After Mary Cassatt), 6"x6",
oil on canvas, (SOLD,thank you!)

(close up of study of Mary Cassatt painting The Bath)

I will most assuredly need to take a better photograph of this piece tomorrow as I ran out of sunlight today, but this is what I've been up to the past couple of days...along with finishing up a couple of commissioned pieces. I absolutely love the work of Mary Cassatt, especially her paintings of mothers with their children. The Bath, is just lovely. I spent nearly 3 1/2 hours just painting the study of this painting, trying to get the colors just right...hopefully I've done Mary's piece some justice. This painting will be available on ebay this evening.
(*Also, I am still waiting to hear if I can share the name of the designer/stylist who I just completed a painting for...I'm hoping I will be able to spill the beans in the next day or two, very exciting...hopefully he will like the portrait I did! It was a surprise from another designer to this person...someone who just may give Martha a run for her money!! :o)
(**Update: I replaced the photo, but am still waiting for the sun to break thru the clouds to get a better photo...paintings always look better in real life! :o)


  1. The most excellent piece of art! Love it!

  2. Thank you, I need to get a better photo...it looks SO much better than what the photo is showing...I love Mary Cassatt :o)

  3. Beautiful!
    adore Cassatt's paitings as well...

  4. Thank you so much!I'm a bit disappointed that the sun has still not broken thru the clouds here in Michigan, but I will replace the photo now and hope for more sun later on :o)

  5. I've always loved her artwork too. There is something so real about her work. I think your piece is gorgeous! What a creative idea, Love it!

  6. Lovely! Do I see a subtle Karin Jurick-esque hint influencing painting? It delightfully reminds me of her gallery of "gallery" pieces!

    Still on the edge of my seat wondering who the mystery designer/stylest is! Can't wait till those particular beans will be spilled!

  7. That has got to be THE best compliment ever!I have admired Karin Jurick's work for a few years now, ever since I started to paint!It is my goal to paint like her one day!:o)...and it is just about killing me not to be able to share who I did a portrait for, but I have to wait until this person gives 'him' the gift!!Stay tuned!

  8. Carn't wait to see who you have done your painting for, i bet you are excited too Elaine :)

  9. Still waiting to find out when I can spill the beans...but I could say if you looked around my blog a bit you just might be able to figure out who it is, but if you do shhh! it is supposed to be a surprise!
