Meeting Monet at Te Papa

Wellington city is a great place to meet celebrities and so it was fitting that we should have an encounter with the world famous impressionist, Claude Monet, over the weekend. Ok so you know he’s not with us in body but artistically he is still very much alive and the 150,000 people who showed up to his exhibition at Te Papa museum confirms that. Just in case you were wondering, when I say impressionist I’m not referring to someone who makes a living from imitating all the quirky, strange people in the world, I’m talking about a quirky, strange person who dabs at a canvas (but in an extremely unique and talented way).
