studio 30

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.
