beauties in paint (with no stains on their shirt)

Some more things to see at the art museum. I am really itching to go back again. I think I will take my sketch book this time to capture some of my favorite areas. I can not draw people but I can still sketch my favorite corners of architecture and frames and furniture and other non-people things around the beautiful museum building.





Tell me if you like any of these paintings. I'd love to hear which is your favorite.



Again, I love that the fabrics look so real. The detail of the sheen of the fabric or the brocade trim or the lace...




Thank goodness this style went away!! I don't think I would do well wearing this style collar!! Would you?


My kids always tease me that I need a bib when I eat 'cuz I never fail to splash or drop something on my shirt. I would definitely not be able to eat or drink in this collar!! Could you begin to imagine the laundering these required? Maybe they were never laundered...that would be even worse!!

I like the 3rd from the top. I like the gloves matching the flowers. And she looks like a real person looking at you, rather than a portrait. My pup could've used one of those collars last week! She's better now, tho :) You do wonder who fabbed up something like that, for around one's neck! Hmmm...
Fun post Amy!

I love the lady who is seated. That last portrait. What a strange waistline on that dress. Do you think she was pregnant?
