So the official Listography site has this week’s list as same sex crushes or women we admire. For some reason when these lists appear about naming people we admire, I always start to think of artists. So here are a few:
Berthe Morisot, French Impressionist painter
Rose Naftulin, my good painting buddy who I dearly miss.

When I was listing my new necklace in my Etsy shop today, I was thinking of how much I favor mother and baby paintings.
Especially the paintings from the Impressionist period, and especially Mary Cassatt.
There is something so tender and sweet about these paintings. Soft colors and gentle painting dominate the works.
Love and warmth dominate the canvases.
Such empathy and concern portrayed by the mothers,
The painting that is showcased in my pendant is from an oil painting I did of a mother and baby.
Now, that was a fun painting to paint!!
