Art Gallery and Claude Monet

Well, at the end of last week Kaylee and i attended an art show held by her school. They got a red carpet and decorated everything very nice in order to make it like a New York City art show. We had to dress up, and we had lots of fun. You should have seen Kaylee walking around with her little hors d'oeuvres and commenting on all of the art. She looked so cute and "sophisticated." LOL Her class did recreations of Claude Monet's Water Lilies series of paintings. Kaylee chose "Water Lily Pool" to recreate. It was so precious, and it was so neat how she could stand there and explain everything about Monet, his style, and his inspiration for the painting. Her class had also recreated Monet's garden in Giverny, with the bridge and pond and little water lilies that they had made. We had lots of fun.

Unfortunantely, I left my camera at home, but Paul snapped a few shots of us before we left. And I am including a photo of Monet's original "Water Lily Pool."
