Water Lilies by Claude Monet is one of my favorite paintings. I think that his style is amazing and the colors are beautiful. I like this particular version of waterlilles because a few years ago in art class, an impressionistic artist came in to speak. During his presentation, he referenced Monet and showed the class the painting to the left. He didn't tell anyone anything about the painting, but instead he asked the class what we thought it was a painting of. No one in my class could guess- but I knew that it was a painting of water lilies. When I first saw the picture, I felt exactly how I feel when I see the pink waterlillies in the lake across from my grandparents house. It is as clear to me as it ever was, and ever will be, what Monet was trying to reflect in this painting. Plus, there's nothing more magical than a pink water lily, I mean, I know it's girly and all, but who cares! ~ F
First of all, I love sunflowers! I think that this painting is so peaceful. It reminds me of the beach and makes me feel warm. I think the colors are vibrant and clear, even though the image is somewhat blurred.
It's like a dream. ~ L
Does anyone else like Claude Monet or are there any other artists that you would like to share with us?
