  1. Hi Melanie
    Your post about Mary Cassatt attracted my attention on NaBloPoMo because I also mentioned one of her paintings, in my Blog post on May 6th! Interestingly enough – it is a different one that those you have posted here! I’m glad I found your blog, and I am in awe of what I know of you thus far! Happy Mother’s day – x 9!

  2. I love Mary Cassatt paintings and have for some time. The impressionists had a wonderful way of painting softness when they portrayed scenes of everyday living and landscapes.

      1. I think my favorite was Manet. He never had the recognition that Monet got, but they are all good. Mary Cassatt I think was the only woman, and she had a perspective and talent the others did not.
