I have such a deep admiration for John Singer Sargent's paintings - in person, they are so very awesome, so elegant - whether the subject is a man or woman of privilege or sidewalk scenes in Spain - they are a thing of masterful beauty. When I paint one of his pieces in my composition, I find myself painting slow and attentive, always learning more and more from Sargent.
