At first I would like to tell you this painting is not painted by a child. Actually it was from Claude Monet who was a great painter. And this painting is called Sunrise. I do not like this painting very much at the beginning, but somewhat I started to appreciate it when I stared at it for some time. It seems it is easy to paint like that, but he was the one who could paint like it that well.

It is not my favorite work from Claude Monet. I also prefer the works of Renoir.

Of course I like his Water Lilies much more. That color is quite complicated but somewhat looks peaceful.

I like his paintings now although they do take time to get used to. We visited his house and gardens when we were in France.

I like it... it's hard for me not to appreciate any paintings since I know I can never do one myself...

@responsiveme The strange thing is all my kids are very artistic - well, maybe not that strange... perhaps my husband has something to do with that too...

How amazing that you visited Monet's home. Is his pond very beautiful?

@youless The pond with the lilies was just another pond. There is a flower garden at the house. You see his studio.

Are you sure? Monet is quite a famous painter. And actually I think his painting Water Lilies series are one of the most expensive paintings in the world.

That's beautiful, usually I don't understand most of the paintings, I don't have that much brain I should say, not very artistic, but this one if we stare for sometime we get the theme. A painting should be easy to understand , by people like me
