Patience Brewster having her annual ornaments bonanza or whatever it is going on over there :)

Soooooooooo.... apparently August is Artist Appreciation Month. So I'm going to squish a few relevant-to-that-idea posts in here at the very end of August :)
Degas is, of course, totally awesome. Ballerinas come to mind first....
..... and then stuff like this. Which is also awesome, his modeling always blows my mind.
And then I stumbled across this fellow and liked him very much, Yes, Dagas.... googleimages is not to be trusted, apparently it can't tell the difference between Degas, Renoir, and Toulouse-Lautrec, but this seems legit. And totally inspired (cue drum roll)....
A cat. Of course, a cat.
The wonderful ladies over at Patience Brewster told me about the whole Artist Appreciation Month thing- and that is some magical stuff, especially the ornaments!

The first time I've tried to paint that cloudy next-to-the-yolk opaque thing that happens sometimes! I thought it was called the albumen, but google says that's just a term for the white in general, so I was at a loss for a title. Cool texture though.

I don't know how you all feel about Modigliani, but I've always been intrigued by his paintings..... doing little sketches based on them feels awesome. Especially when I've got so many nice long-necked critters around as inspiration.
