Renoir redos


Remember the Renoir commissions that mysteriously disappeared in the mail? Well, they never resurfaced so I painted them again. I debated over whether I should use the ones I painted last time as reference or use the print outs I had of the original Renoirs. I opted to look at the original paintings. I knew they wouldn't be exactly the same, but at least I was starting at the same point. I was happy with how they came out and my customer is happy too. I am now an expert at every detail in these paintings. I need to go to the MFA soon and see the real ones in person.

Renoir is one of my favorite artists and you've done him proud again, Ann. I still think the man dancing in the second piece looks like Van Gogh.

You are so right Sherry. I thought the same thing when I was painting it!
