After yesterday’s post, I found this beautiful painting of a garden scene with paper lanterns by Brian Mahieu.

It reminds me of John Singer Sargent’s “Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose” painting, too…

Sargent will always be one of my special favorites for so many different reasons. I could go on and on, but instead I’ll just share a few of my favorites:

Sargent’s work spread across such a broad spectrum of subjects, which is part of why I love him so much, and this assortment is just a slice of the stunning work he produced during his lifetime. Please learn more about him…you won’t be disappointed.
