Inspired by: MFA Boston's John Singer Sargent Watercolors

The "John Singer Sargent Watercolors" exhibition just opened at the MFA Boston. I have been looking forward to this show since seeing it on their Upcoming calendar earlier this year. When I worked at an art gallery in Boston the summers between sophomore & junior years of college, the assistant gallery director (who is now one of my very good friends) loved Sargent, and I always think of her when I see his pieces. She lives in Texas now, but I know that she would be first in line to see this show if she was still in Boston.  Ninety pieces will be on display, but here are just a few that inspired me.
