Tribute to Monet



The fantastic Claude Monet used to spend weeks and months at a time far away from home doing painting projects.  His wife and family missed him greatly.  He decided he would resolve the problem.  He planted one of the world’s most beautiful gardens and created a charming lilly pond where he painted the rest of his life — right at home in Giverny, France.

I had the chance to visit my favorite painter’s home and gardens.  I was in ecstacy as I walked where he walked.  I saw his beautiful Japanese bridge.  The water lillies were beautiful.  I was able to see what he painted.  The hanging flowers, trees, shrubs, and flowers created a magic I’ll never forget.

I so enjoy your paintings and the definitions of how, who, what and where they are painted. You make me want to start painting again. I love this painting. When I was a young girl I drew something similar, but there where always weeping willow trees and swans (not beautiful flowers). This is a dreamy, beautiful painting. Thanks again for sharing with us.

I love your paintings Tom! Esp the waterlilies, but also all of your landscapes and still life. I also love the colors and light you bring into each painting. All of your paintings are unique!
