Claude Monet 1840-1926, French impressionist. I have always loved the paintings from Monet. Here are a few of my favorites.  The first one with the parasol is his wife and child.  I never knew that tidbit. I always loved the water lilies.

"The Walk, Woman with a Parasol".

"Irises in Monet's Garden"

"Water-Lilies, Evening Effect"

"Green Reflexions- left panel"

We were just at the Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris on Monday... those massive waterlilies are just spectacular!

Love Monet - he's the reason I always wanted to be a painter!

If you haven't seen Google Art Project yet you should check it out. You can virtually visit art musuems all around the world. My kids and I are loving it!
