Midnight Minstrels

'Atmosphere' is the topic for IF this week.

****GIVE AWAY****



“For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life - the light and the air which vary continually. For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.” ~ Claude Monet.


For a FREE print (including international shipping) of the above painting "Midnight Minstrels" just become a 'friend' of this blog and leave a comment. A person will be picked at random on Thursday.

Me! me! me! I love your art, but the one you posted for "atmosphere" has the shades of blue and green that I love most in the world. The references to music and lamplight are perfect for the topic too.
