More mini Sargent studies



I just can't get enough of these little paintings. I find I learn so much by studying master's works. These two pieces, measure about 3.5" by 2.5" and are inspired by the painting Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose by John Singer Sargent. I remember seeing this painting in person at a show at the MFA in Boston and it was just so magical in it's size and it's luminosity. The lanterns looked like they were actually lit from behind the canvas.

I've ordered some cute frames from Nancy at MiniArt Supply and have started framing these up. I'm excited to show you the final pieces. Stay tuned!
