Tub Time

The Bath, 6 x 6 " oil on archival panel, ©2013, Fay Terry

The bath paintings of Pierre Bonnard are among my favorites, and Bonnard ranks very high on my list of artists that I hold in high esteem. I have recently decided to begin working on a series of bath paintings and thought this was a good one to start with.
This little one loves taking a bath at my house and has fun with the waterfall faucet.


  1. Thanks for introducing me to Pierre Bonnard. My first thought was Mary Cassatt. I guess it must be the tenderness I felt this painting sends. Very nice.

  2. Adorable work Fay. Great idea starting the bath paintings.

  3. What a great subject! Look forward to seeing them!

  4. awww... what a sweet painting! I am going to love this subject and I'm looking forward to the series.

  5. This is a sweet painting and the bath has been a subject of many artists, Degas comes to mind for me.

  6. Love the muted grays and blues - has a very soft, gentle feeling.
