This is my reproduction of a detail area of The Pieta by Wm. Adolphe Bouguereau, 20X24 oil. This week I am trying to clean up the studio from all the chaos of the past weeks; organizing and putting away frames I had scattered throughout the entire workspace. I packed 3 little paintings for shipment and have been preparing for a show in December, called "The Masters as Teachers" It is lots of fun for me to be painting anything, but the Masters have a special place in my heart. I will be showing work by da Vinci, Sargeant, Bouguereau, Landseer, Cassat, Vermeer, and others in this month-long exhibit. I have been looking forward to it all year with much excitement!

Very ineresting. Painting from the masters can
be rewarding! Also frustrating.

Years ago I did a Bouguereau and liked it. Then
I wiped it out (sort of) now sits on a shelf waiting for a face. Help?
