Art lessons from a Master Painter - James Whistler Real Thing

When in Chicago, I make it a point to visit the Art Institute of Chicago. It is fabulous, but more about that in another blog!

There is nothing like seeing your favorite paintings in life, they are so much more beautiful than even the finest reproduction. There are my favorites I always look for, and I always see something new. Back in August 2011 I posted about being inspired by a photo of a painting. What a surprise I had when I saw the painting in the museum!

Check out the old post to see the painting and the process. My final painting was an award winner at the competition it was in, and was purchased.
