I was recently in Washington D.C. and visited the National Gallery of Art, where I got to see Sargent's painting, Nonchaloir (Repose), a painting I love so much that I copied it years ago (see below.) It is one painting I will never sell. It was a thrill to finally get to see it in person!

This is a study for a large painting, a commission. I first used photos of the Dora Canal, but it is impossible to paint it without most of the canvas being green, so I opened it up to get more sky and reflection. There will be more 'critters' in the final.

Our Pieces of Eight painting challenge for February was to illustrate a song or poem, so I chose the old standard "Moon Over Miami." Go to the Pieces of 8 blog to see all the challenge responses.
