Claude Monet spent a lot of time painting and re-painting familiar scenes under different conditions of light and weather. This explains in part his remarkable gift for portraying the subtlety and nuance that has made his work so beloved. There’s a soothing quality to a Monet painting, almost like living in a dream.

Morning on the Seine in the Rain (Claude Monet, 1897-98)

If I could see things the way Monet did, even a cold, dreary day like today becomes beautiful.
