Impression

“Every day I discover more and more beautiful things…I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.” – Claude Monet

“It’s on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way.
So we must dig and delve unceasingly.” – Claude Monet

Impressionism is a form of painting that has an emphasis on the depiction of light in it’s changing qualities, often portraying the passage of time. It is about the human perception and experience. Claude Monet, a founder of Impressionism, was prolific in his ability to paint what he saw. Moved by color, light, flowers, nature…he was a  man who wished to paint the way a bird sings.

When I look at a Monet painting, I can’t help but to ponder the emotion he must have felt as he swirled his paintbrush around, trying to capture the fleeting and insatiable beauty of the French landscape. The beauty of his spirit, combined with what the eye can  see, allowed for the creation of something divine.
