Aphrodite's Icy Dream

About 5.75x 6 pastel and frozen watercolor on Uart paper, $100.
As I drove to my favorite painting spot I was thinking about why I like this constant repetition. For someone as impulsive as I am, why do I continue to drive here almost every morning?
The answer:
The challenge of responding to the same thing differently over and over and over again touches my impulsive nature in a way that is wonderful. What will she look like tomorrow? And how will my eyes perceive her?
Is that what Monet felt?
