Made for TV Mini Series, Studies of Sargent

 OK, I have been waiting for quite a while to have the time to be able to do this...
  
Over the next week or so I will be doing approximately ten  5x7" or 5x5" studies of some of my favorite John Singer Sargent pieces. If you are a regular reader of this blog you know I have talked about JSSs' influence and pure image making genius more then once. So attempting this should be a chance for me to learn from one of the only painters in my humble opinion to deserve the moniker "Master".  

These minis will be for sale on Ebay starting very low with an optional low buy it now price. I don't plan on regularly selling directly but these "mini series" could be fun and not everyone is looking for large pieces. thanks for stopping by.

Sounds like a great project and I'm sure you will do them justice. Love this one. When will they be on ebay? Do you post there under your own name?

Thanks Mick, This one is on ebay now and if things work out well with the pieces there should be one a day for the next ten days....hopefully. :) You can click the link right below the painting (click here to bid) it will bring you right to the listing.
