Me and Monet

I was listening to Garrison Keillor on Prairie Home
Companion ( the other
day and heard him do a wonderful humourous bit
on visiting a museum and finding that all the guards
were artists. Famous ones. He gets into a conversation
with Monet and without telling you the entire skit,
it ends with one of those things you just moan over...
Monet tells Garrison that 'we have no Monet to buy
deGas to make the Van Gogh. Oooooooooooooooo.
These little water lily paintings I do are my homage
to Monet. This one is 5" x 5", framed. It is $100.

taped to a piece of matboard so I won't
be sticking my fingers in wet paint!

Before dinner

Here's another of my 5" x 7" recent works.
I find that when I see the work on the computer
monitor, it always looks much bigger than when
one is viewing a small vignette of a painting in the
context of everything else in a room. I hope this
makes sense! It is framed and is $100.
