"Visiting Monet" by Edward Burton

This is for Camille Olsen. This fellow is checking out the Monet collection at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. I love these kinds of scenes and love painting them.

  1. This is great, Edward! I love the dynamic of the lady in the front balancing the museum visitor on the right. Beautiful job w/the Monets--just enough info to id them.

  3. Edward, this is excellent and how did you know I would love a Monet-themed painting?! When I have it framed it will help remind me that I need to get into our local and other museums more often, so I can be inspired. I'm so excited you did this, thank you! It is beautiful!
