Last week at Studio 30, I was the model! The inspiration was the paintings of Mary Cassatt, so I wore my hair up and dressed in a long sleeved blouse, long skirt and shawl. Diane Marks-Bestor did a great job as usual with the setting and pose, and kindly sent me a photo afterwards so I could do my own portrait. It was an interesting experience to watch other artists for a change, and to see myself expressed in their different versions. It was also a challenge to paint myself as if it were the 19th century. It's sort of me, sort of Mary Cassatt as I imagine she would have painted me.
