    It's beautiful. Suggests the idea of looking up and swimming free.

    Thank you all. It is such a joy to. be able to pursue a talent without guilt. One thing the society does is inhibit our ability to follow our dreams and develop skills. It is amazing how much of what makes us unique we were prepared to deny ourselves because of the whims of a publishing house.

    Take heart Nugget, Claude Monet painted with bad eyesight. You know how blurry the impressionist paintings can be. Gee, wonder why?

    The lack of detail and color subtlety in the later works of the Impressionist painter Claude Monet can be attributed to postoperative cataract problems, according to letters the artist wrote to his ophthalmologist.

    The letters, which were recently aquired by the French Ophthalmological Society, were discussed by Dr. James G. Ravin in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Dr. Ravin said that because Monet's Impressionistic style was deliberately based on a certain imprecision of detail his visual difficulties did not become apparent until, when he was in his 60's, forms began to vanish in his paintings of weeping willows and water lilies.
