Leaping white rabbits, a la Claude Monet

Claude Monet is one of the most beautiful painters we've seen. That is why it was both a challenge and a great pleasure to follow his works. Look what we got an the result:

The artist

Claude Monet, Self Portrait

From wikipedia:
Claude Monet (French pronunciation: [klod mɔnɛ]), born Oscar Claude Monet (14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926), was a founder of Frenchimpressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.[1][2] The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting Impression, Sunrise(Impression, soleil levant).

Interesting fact:
At the end of his life Monet was suffering from the cataract on both eyes, the sickness had changed his color perception and as a result most of his paintings of this period have a distinct reddish tone:

The process

This is how a working table looks at the creative part of the process, when artist's style is being tightly scrutinized and our painting is being conceived (oh just few hours later :)):

Comments on the photo:
1. Obama proved to be some sort of pussy, or he plays the game none of us understands
2. Jon Stewart is the man
3. Legion XXII Capricon is our town's home legion of the great army of republic of rome

And here you can see a sexy action shot, paint is being applied to the canvas.
