Day 18 - Mary Cassatt

Today's painting is a little portrait of Mary Cassatt. If you don't know of her, she is one of the few women who rose to fame during the infancy stages of the Impressionistic movement. Her work is beautiful, often capturing the tender moments between a mother and her child.  Google her if you get the chance, or click here to go to the Wiki page about her...  I painted her because she is one of my favorite artists. I feel fortunate that I have been able to see a few of her paintings up close and personal, which gives a much deeper appreciation of her talent. I so enjoyed painting the artist Yayui on Day 8 that I decided to try my hand at painting Mary Cassatt as well. There are few photos of her, but this is one of the ones that I loved... that hat...
