Artist's View of Monet's Garden, Giverny, France

Having visited Monet's Gardens in Sept. 2015 I could feel the energy from the beauty in these gardens and lily pond. I got permission to paint there with six others after hours. The ability of Claude Monet to see the beauty of nature is reflected in the way he designed his garden. This visit inspired me to paint this oil painting from a photo I took there. There is a peacefulness in this garden that is impossible to describe. My painting is an attempt to only suggest a hint of the beauty that captured the heart of Monet many times over.
