Finished Painting!

Hey Everybody! I totally finished that Monet painting I've been working on for the longest time! At first I wanted to just try to make a copy of the original. One way of training artistis is to have them practice by copying the masters. But once I got into the painting my own style started taking over... bold colors, lots of movement in the brushstrokes, bigger brushstrokes.... I decided I wanted to keep some of myself in the painting. Of course if I worked hard and kept at it I could get it to be even closer to Monet's, but I really like what I did to my version!
I'm really proud of it! Gonna hang it up in the apartment somewhere!
