What a breath-taking treat to experience a Guy's-eye-tour through some very special Impressionists. I feel, after reading this essay, that I enter into Impressionist art more fully and look more deeply. What a gift Mr. Guy has given us! Aren't we lucky to know him!

Thanks for sharing your impressions of the impressionists, Guy. This past Wednesday, I had the privilege of going to San Francisco's Asian Art Museum to visit the "Looking East: How Japan Inspired Monet, Van Gogh, and other Western Artists" (http://www.asianart.org/exhibitions_index/looking-east). I had never thought about any influence from Japan on the impressionists nor post-impressionist paintings and was delighted by what I learned. Art is a wonderful way to feed our souls. I'm grateful for the artists and those who have preserved their art so we can enjoy it now and into the future.

The paintings that you selected to comment on are among my favorites and reminded me of the times I have spent admiring them. Thank you for sharing.
