Today's artist is French Painter Claude Monet 1840-1926 specifically the painting Woman with a Parasol - Madame Monet and Her Son. I picked this piece today simply because it's sunny this morning and it helps.

But Monet is interested in light itself, and captures it in the scene in an unmatched way."
