MY CALENDAR - "MONET AT SEA" -  FEBRUARY

          "THE CLIFF AT DIEPPE" (1882)
"It is easy to imagine Monet's sense of awe when he set his easel on a neighboring cliff to capture this dizzying view of the magnificent Normandy coast.  As if to remind us how small the human being is in relation to nature's wondrous works, Monet figures the painting with people in mere gestures of calligraphic brush strokes, on the grassy cliff and on the shadowy beach below."
"OUT, OUT, BRIEF CANDLE,
LIFE'S BUT A WALKING SHADOW...."
