Ancient Skies

Monet from Pinterest

With a simple paintbrush he could see the horizon

that it was not a destination, but light between worlds,

a way of thinking really, bending colors, identifying

the softness. Just a hint of humans passing through

time, walking softly between colors and light.

A lot of blue with green, often a sky.

Monet.

  1. The biggest gift in Monet’s work is how readily apparent is his genius.

    • Agree! I’ve been drawn to Monet’s work ever since an early childhood visit to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ancient Skies’ poem thoroughly captures the essence of art and artist for me. Have a beautiful weekend, James.

  2. Me too. My mother was very fond of the impressionists and we had big books showing their painting lying around. I’m not sure I ever liked any kind of art better than that period. Do you think Money was really so astigmatic that he really saw things that way?

    • Why I had never given that a thought…leave it to you, Marilyn. 🙂 Definitely an interesting idea. In the event that he did, Monet sure know how to turn trial into triumph. Glad you stopped by and got me thinking a little more deeply about life and art… Hugs. 🙂

  3. Love this–Monet is one of my best favorites. 🙂

  4. I love impressionists, and Monet was incredibly talented.
