Seeing Simply

Impression, Sunrise, Claude Monet

"When you go out to paint try to forget what object you have before you - a tree, a house, a field or whatever. Merely think, here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow…"
- Claude Monet

    Love this one, Gregg.
    I've not heard that Monet quote before, I love his art gifts.
    He had a way of "Seeing Simply" as you say.

  2. Terri,

    Perhaps life can be like Monet's painting advice - a little effort here, a bit of love there, a stroke of rest mixed with a splash of play. Without worrying about it, a lifestyle begins to emerge as your continuing work of art.
