My Artist Pick of the Week: Mary Cassett

I love being inspired by the works of famous artists and I clearly remember the first time I ever saw one of Mary Cassett's Paintings in the National Gallery in Washington, DC.  From that moment on, I was an huge fan.  I remember the piece was of a little girl in a straw hat and the expression on her face was priceless and amazing.  Mary is also known for her tender gentle interpretation of Mother's with their children and babies.  Her ability to capture on canvas that special bond between mother and child, truly creates one of those remarkable moments when a picture does speak a thousand words.  So  here are some of my favorite paintings by Mary Cassatt.  I hope you enjoy them.
