Off with their heads!

While I don't know squat about art, I am particularly drawn to the impressionists. The picture I use on this blog is Monet's Impression, soleil levant, the painting for which the Impressionist movement was named.

I spent a week in London between my junior and senior year of high school. While I was there, I got to see my first Monets and Renoirs.

The colors, brush strokes and plays on light combined with the serenity and beauty of these masterpieces touched my soul. I will never forget seeing Monet's The Waterlily Pond in all its majesty.

So, why someone would want to damage one of these masterpieces is beyond my comprehension.
