Welcome to my humble critique of a favorite artist hero, Claude Monet. I'm certainly going out on a limb here to offer my opinion of this great artist's work--am I out of my mind? Me critiquing Monet? Why me?

I am an active real live artist with many paintings treasured by my patrons. I dare to offer criticism and take a hard look at such a revered artist's works as all this is meant to be helpful for new artists and painters, and useful for anyone who appreciates art, especially impressionism. I'll get a few things off my chest, while clarifying what's next for me and my work. It's all good, I promise!
