Who is an artist if not a person who interprets parts of the human experience? They look at the world, they look at us, and they look INSIDE us, to produce something that invokes both beauty and meaning. Each artist is one of a kind, like a fingerprint or a flake of snow. And when they pass from this world, something unique is lost forever, except through their works and in the souls of the people who appreciate their art. We will never forget these artists, and so there is a little bit of them in all our souls. How about yours? Is there an artist in yours?

You're a very calm and logical person who has a deep love for nature - much like Monet and his exquisite impressionist creations, invigorating the European art scene in the too-brief period of 1865-1880. Monet spent most of his life in inspiring rural environments in countries such as his homeland of France, England and Holland. It was in these countries that he painted the vistas he saw, creating famous paintings such as The Bridge and Harmony in Green. Like him, we wouldn't be surprised if you like nature, travel and distances, and you won't miss an opportunity to go out to a natural preserve or the forest to with your family to relax for a bit. In addition, Monet used a technique of fast sketching and short brush strokes, rich with color. This may correspond to your method of work, which is "quick and to the point." And so we encourage you to keep finding worlds out there to gaze at, and be that quick decider people can count on. Don't forget though, it's ok to stop and smell the roses...
You're one to rely on the environment you're in and on your family and friends, and as such, you are highly influenced by that connection. The painter hiding in your soul is probably the Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, who learned the secrets of modern art from his father, and added inspiration from every place he's been and the people in his life. He was the founder of the Cubism movement, early in the 20th century. Cubism takes objects apart in ways that both destroy the item and display its essence in a whole new way, opening the door to incredibly inventive and creative types of art. Thanks to these qualities that resonate with you, you're a person happy to give back to the environment all that it has given you. Remember to always hold the big picture in your head, and see the full view, that's what Picasso would do...
Francisco de Goya
The Spanish artist Francisco de Goya was one of the most salient painters of the romantic stream of art that developed in the first part of the 19th century. Goya's ambition was to express those sensations and phenomena man cannot control, such as natural disasters and the hand of fate. Like the other romantics, you seem to have a dramatic and larger-than-life personality, and are definitely noticed wherever you go to (whether that is good or bad). Goya, known for famous paintings such as The Nude Maja and The Third of May, 1808, was warmly adopted by the royal family of his nation, though he served them for a very long time, he knew how to criticize them via his paintings. It seems that, like de Goya himself, you do not save words not keep your opinion to yourself when the truth needs to be told. It's a great trait, just careful with the damage it can do.
According to your answers, you seem like a real go-getter, much like the 17th century Dutch painter Rembrandt himself. His work is considered part of the golden age of Dutch art. Rembrandt saw huge success at a young age, before even reaching the age of 30 due to his powerful paintings that wowed everyone who saw them. He became the most sought after portrait painter in Amsterdam, not a mean feat in those days of cultural renaissance. Like him, you seem like a person who can win the hearts of people wherever you go, and be noticed and recognized in whatever you do due to pure skill. We wouldn't be surprised if you have managing skills and the rewards that come with them. We only warn you not to squander the wealth that life brings you, like Rembrandt did later on in his life.
According to your answers, you seem to be one of those people who know how to do just about everything, much like the legendary artist Michelangelo. Like almost everyone else, you are probably familiar with his famous creations such as The Creation of Man and the famous Statue of David. Like David, Michelangelo went his own way, and made his own choices on what he wanted to work on, taking on many assignments that seemed impossible to other artists. You are the same, you see reality the way it is. With that in mind, we hope your other traits are not like the artist's, who was known as depressed, lonesome and grim.
