As Monet Said, Famously...

"Try to forget what objects you have before you — a tree, a house, a field or whatever. Merely think, ‘here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow’, and paint it just as it appears, the exact color and shape."

Here are three paintings I've been looking at this week (clicking on an image will take you to the artist's website):
