Fortunately for you, Claude does not have email or Facebook!Looks as if you are enjoying this challenge of painting in another style. You are handling it well. I'm not seeing any stress in your brush strokes:)
Hi Joe!I am very much enjoying the class! Much fun!I am also enjoying your blog! Thanks for dropping by!Michael
Isn't Monet exceptional...especially the haystacks! You did a wonderful job of this. Can't wait to see your next assignment!
Good morning Celeste!I love Monet! The lights and darks and varied colors in the Haystack series are amazing. I saw them in Boston some years back!I am having a great time revisiting Monet and his friends!Thank you for visiting so often and writing such fine supportive words!Take care.Michael
Hi Michael,I like what you did combining Claude's 2 paintings; the colours are a nice balance...it's always so humbling to learn from copying the masters. Sounds like your class is quite enjoyable, and experimenting is the order of the day... have fun with it!
Good Day Sally!I am so glad you like my painting! I think the colors were the most fun! I am happy you noticed them! Especially the warms!My class is very enjoyable. We artists are very fortunate people. You are right about experimentation! You do it so well! I love your very creative art!Keep making great art Sally!Michael
Great exercise painting from the masters! An eye opener. Your class sounds terrific and Claude would be impressed. The liberties you took, made the painting uniquely your own and your touch was a good one. The colors are wonderful. Happy painting Michael. Enjoy.

That is what I was trying to capture during the whole process!I forgot to shout out to your New Zealand neighbors to enjoy "Waitangi Day!" Michael
Your colors are a little more subdued in this one. Nicely done!! Have a great day!
Thank you Joan! I made an effort to change the colors on this one! I am glad you noticed!Thanks for your support! You have a great day also!Michael
Love how you have interpreted Monet and made him your own. The colors are just fantastic and I know Claude would be applauding!
Hello My Artist Buddy Susan!I am so very happy you like my little Monet challenge! I am glad you noticed the colors. I so very much enjoyed making them on my palette! Mostly right on the canvas! And occasionally mixed right on my apron. I think I will post a photo of my art apron. Looks like an old paint palette!Thanks again Susan!Michael
I had the opportunity to see all of Monet's haystacks together at the Monet exhibit at Chicago's Art Institute many years ago. I love your interpretation.
