Mr. Sargent

I can never spend enough time with the indomitable Mr. Sargent. His paintings that is….which is as close as we get to the man. On Sunday I could not tare myself away from this portrait of Joseph Jefferson at the Players Club in NYC. Here is a neat shot that really shows his mastery of value, color, and edges. The head is so solid, so subtle that the great actor comes to life over 100 years after the final brush stroke!

    It’s mesmerizing. Just pulls you right into to it. I wrote about you on my blog and had lots of great comments and it still gets hits from all over the world. You are an amazing soul and a great Tennessean.
