A fantastic interactive website designed to coincide with the Claude Monet exhibit at the Grand Palais in Paris invites users to interact with his art. You begin by toppling an ink well and then through mouse moves, webcam and microphone directions cause magpies to come to life and winter to become spring.

I spent last weekend taking in the incredible majesty of Niagara Falls. Even though I had been there before, it amazed me to see the immense volume of water crashes over the edge and thundering on the rocks and river below.
I brought along supplies hoping to get a chance to paint and I was happy to find a great view from my hotel room. I woke up early the next morning and painted while my family got ready for the day. I kept the edge of the hotel in my painting because I thought it was an interesting contrast of raw natural beauty and the evidence of man. This was a particular challenge painting directly into the sunrise.
