This is how the story of The Great Lilly Pad begins (by Rachel., grade 8).
I am a Lilly Pad and I am mostly painted by Claude Monet. He likes painting everything around me and he also likes painting other things that are natural like things that don’t live around me. Claude also likes the same thing I see every morning I see a sun rise and he likes painting those to. I live in the mucky swamps in the rivers and lakes also in ponds and slues. My owner Claude died of lung cancer so I don’t get painted that much any more. Claude was really good at painting me because he started out drawing when he was little.
The Great Lilly Pad (RMS193) is part of a series of ‘Artist’ rocks created by students 8th grade Visual Arts Students in Mrs. Hahn’s class at Rogers Middle School, Minnesota, USA. We invite you to visit all RMS rocks and submit your comments and feedback.
