Musing over Monet

Today is Claude Monet’s birthday.  In my humble opinion, he is one of the greatest painters of all-time.  He was born on November 14, 1840.  According to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Monet found subjects in his immediate surroundings to portray on canvas–the people and places he knew best  These scenes included the landscape and leisure activities of Paris and its environs as well as the Normandy coast (see link below).  Join me today in celebrating the amazing gift he received from our amazing God.

Here is the link to The Met, and here’s Renoir’s portrait of Monet!
