This is an 8″ x 10″ oil on canvas board that I started last week. It is further to the one I did on Monet’s garden at Giverny, France. I’ve never visited the site in person but I saw a video of the garden and took exerts to work on. I think I’ll start painting my own garden next year. It won’t compare with Monet’s but it still can inspire. I find when I take photos of my work I can see what needs further work.
Time for another story only this time it’s from Japan.
Time for a story, so here is a story resulting from our trip to Tunisia a couple of years ago.
This is an 8″ x 10″ oil on canvas board I started last week. I recently saw a documentary about Claude Monet’s garden. Most of his later compositions were inspired by his garden in Giverny. Giverny is located north, east of Paris. He had a fabulous garden and I too have been inspired by it. You can see the little bridge that he had built and painted “Giverny Green”
It snowed just enough that we had to shovel. It is expected to rain and turn this mess into an ice palace. We are in lock down now for another 28 days. Just about had enough so now for the object of my desire….
I’m feeling kind of blue and anxious today. My daughter-in-law is not well and she’s been tested for cover-19. The results come back in three days. Please say a little prayer for her, for me.
This is a 5″ x 7″ oil on canvas board I started last week. There’s something about birds that catches the imagination.
We’re having a storm at the moment. High winds, lots of rain and the power was off for a couple of hours. So it’s the Deluge for today.
It’s Friday the 13th so grab yourself a cup of “Joe” and keep safe.
Remembrance Day is the day we remember those who sacrificed their lives to fight for the freedoms we have today. We hope that we will never more, go to war. Rajiv and I worked on this song a couple of years ago and this is what we came up with.
