The Lightbulb Is On

There is a story about Monet who is sitting in his Garden.  His neighbor sees him and says, “I seeing you are resting ,  Claude”.  Monet replies, “No I’m working”.  Two weeks later his neighbor sees him at his easel and says, “Oh Claude,  I see you are working”.   Monet says,  “No I’m resting”.  When it looks like I’m taking time off from painting I’m really rejuvenating my creativity and the lightbulb is on.  People ask me all the time how long did it take to do a painting. My reply is the Monet story.
