Elation - Through the Eyes of Monet

Monet was the founder of Impressionism. He, painstakingly, sought to show light split into its component parts. He would return time after time to the same spot at the same hour to paint the light as it appeared. He would paint the colors of prizms of light. He worked to capture this beauty in nature.

Elation equals joy. It is one of the greatest joys I have found in life to view the beauty in nature. Light dancing on the water never ceases to fascinate me. The dependable ebb and flow of the waves of the Atlantic sea when I gaze at it soothes my own breath. The birds flying above in a blue sky in formations flapping their wings - and i could mention so many more...

Elation will be outdoors and will not have to recreate nature. It will only frame it by its form - eclipsing some views and allowing people to see its interaction with a form of wood in many seasons and types of weather.
