A Painter's Quote About Flowers

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.
Claude Monet

Such a simple sentiment, but one that makes me sit back and wonder... I think that I have some colored pencils around here. Just how hard could it be to draw and color a flower??  On the other hand, I don't claim to have any Monets in my family tree that I know of! Time I started looking now that I think of it.

It took me time to understand my waterlilies. I had planted them for the pleasure of it; I grew them without ever thinking of painting them. ”
 Claude Monet 

I'm never finished with my paintings; the further I get, the more I seek the impossible and the more powerless I feel. ”
Claude Monet
