Children Playing on the Beach


This week challenge on Three Muses is "Artist of Choice". Very difficult choice I'd say. There are so many artists I appreciate. Finnaly I've decided to play with a Mary Cassat's painting I like very much: Children Playing on the Beach. It was painted in 1884.

Background is Beth Rimmer's and the frame is a photo of mine that I altered.

  9. This challenge is such a wonderful way to become acquainted with artists. I googled Mary Cassatt and saw her beautiful work featuring children and mother and child. You've done her proud with this piece, treating the beach scene in a most unique way. Bravo!
