"Delicious Solitude" by Frank Bramley, English Post-Impressionist, This painting shows a good example of the real life subject matter. I feel that this is something a women would do everyday during that period f time.
A man looks up from the water lilies he’s painting. “Flaming flowers that brightly blaze, swirling clouds in violet haze,” he mouths. I lift my feet higher and move them faster. It’s not Monet’s voice carries on the wind but my dad’s.
“The finest works of art are precious, among other reasons, because they make it possible for us to know, if only imperfectly and for a little while, what it actually feels like to think subtly and feel nobly.” Aldous Huxley. Claude Monet. Water Lillies.
Water lilies by Claude Monet // Everyone else around me is busy with their day to day matters, and I'll be sitting in a room full of Monet masterpieces, just soaking in the stillness and beauty and history and thinking, "Holy shit, this is awesome.."
