About the Painting
These are Monet's Poppies, really.  In June, my Sister took a trip to Paris and went to Monet's garden at Giverny.  Lucky Girl! She took some wonderful photos of his home and gardens. I based this painting of one of my favorites from her album.  It is always so interesting to think about how Monet planted his garden so that he would have endless subjects to paint. Going to Paris and Giverny is definitely on my bucket list.
