A painting for my father.  This is a painting of a print of a painting–my dad’s only fine art print, a Monet from Monet’s Houses of Parliament series.  I grew up looking at this print, and became intrigued with it again after being asked to create something for an exhibition Totem, exploring family history and the power of objects.

I recently learned that Monet was criticized for using photography to help with these renderings.
