"For the Love of Monet"

First - pardon me for two things. The title is corny, I know it. But it's the first thing to pop into my head and I usually go with it. And pardon the absence, I appreciate your frequent visits - I've been creating some fun things for my upcoming 30th high school reunion.
DVD's......soundtracks........posters......... tracking people down, and in between, I paint. It's been busy and fun.

This new piece is a scene from the Art Institute of Chicago - my favorite museum where I should be a week from today. I can't wait. This young couple stands before Monet's London paintings - on the left is 'Houses of Parliament' and on the right is 'Charing Cross Bridge', both showstoppers.

Beautiful. It's also my favorite museum. I used to go every Sunday, while my husband would babysit.

Enjoy your reunion.

I'd love to hear how you approach your composition (mostly from photographs?). Excellent work.

I'm so blown away by how you can work a theme over and over and keep it as fresh and original as if you had only painted a single museum piece.

Love the title, and wonderful work. This Chicago girl welcomes you to our fair city once again. Enjoy your trip to the Art Institute, and have a blast at the reunion.

Great job on your "paintings of paintings" - you copy them so well. Enjoy the reunion and don't feel bad about your time taken off. Life is short.
