The Yarnarian gets inspired, yet again.

Paul Helleu Sketching with His Wife

This time by paintings by Sargent, he of the magnificent colors! When I look at a painting, I first see the composition and subject, and then I look at the colors, and Sargent was brilliant in his choice of colors. What I did was look at each painting, and then whatever area of colors my eye was drawn to, that's what I tried to dye. So if you should look at any of these paintings, please note that I singled out a small portion of each one.

A Boating Party. Yep, that boat got to me pretty quickly.

Artist in Simplon: Look at his painting of the mountains!

In the Garden, Corfu: Her skirt, of course.

Mountain Stream: Those rocks and boulders!

Olive Trees, Corfu: Look at the grassy areas.

Paul Helleu Sketching with His Wife: All the lovely grassy areas.

The Sketchers: Various grassy and flowery areas.

You know the drill: if you want before I post on Etsy, email me. fritzL234 AT yahoo DOT com

The Artist in Simplon is grabbed.

What a wonderful idea! You are wonderful. Is "Artist in Simplon" available? If it is I want it. I am treating myself to the baby gift.
