Claude Monet, Impression, Sunrise. 1872. 48 x 63 cm. Oil on canvas. Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris.
I remember I was in the fifth grade and I was looking through a book and saw this painting. Immediately, I fell in love with art. I don't know how to describe the feeling at the time, but I knew that this was something I wanted to do and learn about. I've been hooked ever since.
