Then There were 5: Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

Claude Monet, the great Impressionist painter, developed a style in later years he termed painting the ‘enveloppe’. What does that art term mean?

In most simple terms, it’s painting the atmosphere between the painter and the subject. Now that is a fascinating painting concept!

Sleeping Beauty (poem)

Sleeping Beauty (poem)

Telling the tale
of Sleeping beauty

but the moment a kiss

and they took off with prof - dangling.
