Friday Feature: Claude Monet

Norway Village in the Snow by Claude Monet

Monet equals classic impressionism. Landscapes that capture the subtle changes of light as the day progresses. For paint to reflect the tone of fleeting environments, this was Monet's goal.

For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at any moment.
Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. 
It's enough to drive one mad. 
I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.
Below are a couple of Monet's quick studies of light...

Here is an excellent example of how light changes over the course of just a few hours... amazing!  The earth is so beautiful.
