Monet's Muse...




Awww….Monet…
of all the impressionist artists I think he's my favorite. It's hard to choose but every single painting
he has created takes me to another place. I would love to visit his home someday and paint a long side him, in spirit. I know he's still there…how could he leave? 




Everywhere you look…a painting lives, just waiting for the artist to let it out.
Monet saw the beauty through his own magnificent eyes.








Oh….the bridge that has inspired so many after him. To this day artists paint their interpretation of the bridge at Givenchy

Someday, I will go and paint it.
Can NOT wait! 










Too hard to choose a favorite...






His work has been an influence on mine over the years. When I was going to art school I worked with 
a pastel landscape artist and looking at these now I'm reminded very much of his work. He doesn't have his images available online so unfortunately I can't show you how beautiful they were.

This painting was inspired by the Arboretum in Davis, California. When I saw the bridge my mind immediately was transported back in time to Monet's bridge. The real place is nice but there aren't any flowers.


I'm going to have some great inspiration coming my way very soon! Keep your eyes out for new Parisian paintings! Finally! 


Happy Friday!

I like his work very much, too, Jennifer. I've enjoyed reading about another blogger's trip to his home.

Are you familiar with Laura from Decor to Adore? If not, you should Google her blog. You'd enjoy her photos and posts! Susan
