After this simple and short attempt at color within a landscape I really have a new found awe for Monet, I really have no idea how he achieved the perfection of color in his paintings. I’m sure he started with a multitude of hours per painting though. I have seen so many amazing things in my life and in many cases I have overlooked their monumental achievement, its nice to be reminded from time to time about things that are truly great, wonderous items that have unfortunately become commonplace

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
