Friday Fave

When I woke up this morning, there was a early morning haze-probably the heat that awaits outside- but it was oddly comforting and serene.  I knew immediately the artist who could capture this exact moment: Claude Monet.  This painting is one of Monet's early morning paintings of the Seine-one of his many paintings of the river.
