Hi Kim, So many talented artists to write about. This is a superior work of writing. I was an artist, mostly black & white scratch board works. When my eyesight got weaker with age, I began writing. Have you seen William Merritt Chase paintings ? Quite beauteous, I don't think he got the credit he deserved ~

I am familiar with Sargent's paintings, Kim. You've captured his style of the socialite women he captured on canvas. Many thanks for reading my humor. / M
