“A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually. One must fight for a life of action, not reaction.”
– Rita Mae Brown
Masters Study – Georges Seurat A Sunday on la Grande Jatte crop
2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC
I loved this entire painting, but was too chicken to do more than a little crop. I like the feel of the original, with all the ladies in their Sunday finery. I really am creating current art, but it’s not ready to post yet, so thanks for hanging in there with me, while I share my 2008 Masters series.
The original Seurat painting can be seen here.
About Rita Mae Brown
American author Rita Mae Brown became a pioneer of lesbian-themed fiction with the publication of her first novel, the best-selling Rubyfruit Jungle. She was born in 1944 in Pennsylvania and ultimately settled in Virginia, where most of her novels take place. After she lost a college scholarship due to her political activism, she briefly lived in an abandoned car with a friend and a cat named Baby Jesus. Her many novels include a mystery series “co-written” with her cat, Sneaky Pie.
