The assignment this week was to visit an art gallery and to get a feel of how I connect with other types of artists. I was unable to get to a showing, so I explored the masters of long ago, via the internet!
Years ago, when I had an art appreciation class in college, I become acquainted with many of the names of those masters, and grew to appreciate Impressionistic art. I loved the colors and inflection of light, and so was hoping that perhaps my style was along those lines of Claude Monet.

We were pretending to be Victorian ladies and
I asked a passerby to take our picture.
It was late afternoon and I loved the way the photo turned out!
Early Impressionistic art used compositions of light, unique mixtures of bold colors and the allusion of movement to capture the scene. Artist who worked in the Impressionistic style painted their perception of the scene and accentuated the colors rather than the details.
I am really amazed at the similarities in these two photos.
This has been an incredible experience. I never would have even considered that I could relate to the artists of another era! It's all very overwhelming.
