He was born November 4th
in Paris France
and had an artistic eye the moment he was born
his fascination
with light upon the waters
reflected itself
in the painting of the Red Boats which is
priceless today

He was a dreamer and 
an impressionist schemer
studying composition upon the lap of the masters
he would wile away the time
mixing tints and hues
and worked in yellows
crimsons and
various shades of blues

for me i liked the irises
as they graced the canvas with luminosity
and I found the sunflowers wonderful
as they stretched forth with light that seemed free

his passion is an inspiration
for all the various artists to be
a compelling path to follow

    A nicely descriptive work extolling the genius of a truly great artist...much appreciated...and Irises are, indeed, truly lovely -- both the actual flowers and the painting.
