Time for a siesta

Once in a awhile I find the need to catch up on some sleep during the weekends with a mid-day nap.  One of my favorite artists, John Singer Sargent captured this perfectly in his painting titled Siesta.  The balance of light and dark values, warm and cool colors, and intertwined shapes creates a genuinely relaxed mood on a beautiful day outside.  This inspired me to attempt a copy of this famous painting.
