Berthe Morisot – Female Impressionist
Berthe Morisot was a 19th century French painter in a talented group known as the Impressionists. She had a close acquaintance with Édouard Manet, another well-known impressionist painter, and married his brother, Eugene. Their daughter, Julie, became the subject of many of Berthe’s paintings. Probably because she was female, her work was undervalued for over a century. She is now considered among the most elite of the impressionists. Our SegPlayPC set contains 30 of her best works, which demonstrate her focus on the intimacy of family and domestic life. We’ve included The Cradle, Grain Field, The Harbor at Lorient, Chasing Butterflies, Summer Day, Young Girl with Cage, The Cheval Glass, The Dining Room, Mother and Sister of the Artist Reading and Woman at her Toilet.

Botanicals – Kenneth Greene Photography and Design
Kenneth Greene has spent the past 35 years doing photographic studies in contrasts, lines, colors and glimpses of life in a moment of time. When Kenneth photographs people, he captures a feeling for that one moment that really matters in their lives. He may not know what happened just prior to the photo, and he almost certainly wont know what their lives will be like after that instant he memorializes. He captures that moment in time alone, but it somehow tells their entire life story in a second. I’m looking for the instant the tide recedes and washes over the rocks; the moment a diver propels herself upwards and her feet leave the diving board; or when a couple embraces…just before the waves crash down upon them. These are the moments in life when you hold your breath, wondering what comes next. The former child protective services professional recently retired from San Diego County after working for almost two decades with victims and families of child abuse and violence.Now it is time to pursue my passion full time for art and design. The act of creating nurtures my soul. I love taking photographs and I love to draw and paint. Kenneth’s whimsical drawings appear in a line of coloring books and note cards entitled, Pictures From My Mind. Geared to young children, teenagers, and adults, these images can be colored, will spark new ideas with readers, or can just be enjoyed as they are. His newest collection is called Havana @ 1/500th of a second. It is a memorable experience of the people and countryside of Cuba, portraying a land stuck in time with a nation yearning to leap into the 21st century.
