Monet

Well, after a lot of Michelangelo, we needed some Impressionism in our lives. So, it's on to Claude Monet. One of the most appreciated practices of Monet, at least in our house, is his love of painting outdoors. We headed outside and our enthusiastic crew quickly turned their plain pieces of paper into a watercolor wonderland.
Thankfully we had some good weather for our Monet days. As I write this, it is once again raining, raining raining in our mountain home. Monet would have liked the changing light, but even he might have had his paintings ruined by the amount of rain we usually get around here.
Everyone liked Monet! And hopefully, when we visit the States we can go see some real Monet in a museum!
