Monet & Giverny

No wonder Claude Monet created so many beautiful paintings. Look what kind of 'paintings' my camera discovered in Monet's gardens in Giverny. Join me on a short walk...

The light among flowers and the games they play together call for creating impressionistic paintings.

Impressions, inspirations...

Beautiful scents that you can't see...

Red dots, green dots, pink dots...

Water, water lillies and Japanese bridge. A quiet peace...

But the gardens wouldn't look so nice if there were no helping hands among plants all year round.

And what to do with these lines?

Hmm, it's time to paint! Let's go!

Spring is...

...here! I've waited and waited to see if it is really, really here. Now I'm sure. 

She has wings, fancy shoes, modern look and gracious movement. It has all the pretty flowers with her and she scatters beautiful scents in the air. Little singing birds are there with her too.

This painting took me ages to be finished. I'm still not very happy about it, but I had to stop before I would bring it into the wrong direction... I'm still exploring how to simplify things, like the face and other things. I like to put on my paintings lots of information (so that the viewer has to stop and spend some time exploring all the details), but on the other hand, I want that many info don't make a mess and chaos. They have to be simple, powerful and gentle...

Here are some details... 

And yes, there's a little bird 'hidden' there somewhere... 

...and yes, I did sew on this painting too. 

How does your spring look like?
