MONET'S WATERLILIES

Even with all the traffic in the gallery, sitting in the middle of Monet's waterlilies is still a meditative experience. The 8 panels inside Musee de l'Orangerie offer a haven of peace among the hustle & bustle of the city.

MY PARIS RAMBLINGS

Aside from practicing & training my eyes with sketches, 

I get to come home with a few paintings, a most productive month!

MONET'S GIVERNY



My annual pilgrimage to Giverny... it's not so much a garden of flowers as of colors & tones. One hour from bustling Paris, Monet's famous house & garden sit quietly along the river valley & lush farmland. Early spring colors come from thousands of bulbs.

SACRE COEUR






Paris offers so much that after all these years, it still remains fresh for my painterly eyes. Instead of being overwhelm with a new city & new adventures, I start my artful day with catching a sunrise from Sacre Coeur.



 I then go into the church & open my sketchbook while the angels sing! A pretty lovely start to my Paris Ramblings.

No digital trick on this Easter illustration. Just used photoshop to insert Bunny & Chick onto the Lily border.
