Conversation with Madame Monet

Monet - Impression Sunrise
Now Claude, the camera has been around for quite some time now.
People expect to see that kind of precision and detail in their art.

Monet - Wheatstacks
For heaven's sake, Claude, can't you pick something more interesting than haystacks to paint?

Monet - Poplar Trees 1891
Well, I have to hand it to you, Claude. When you decided to paint trees,
you picked out just about the ugliest ones you could find.

Monet - Ruen Cathedral
If you have seen one cathedral, you have seen them all.

Monet - La Grenouillere
You are always off carousing with your riffraff artist friends.

Monet - Waterlily Pond
I think you may finally be on to something with the water lilies, but there are too many of them and the colors are all wrong.

Monet - Lady with Parasal
You are so absorbed in your work. You never think about me or the family.

William's Whimsical Words:

No one in your family appreciates your art.
