20151029-112346.jpgThe garden in Giverny, France, originally designed and planted by the Impressionist painter Claude Monet, enchants with its autumn foliage color and scent-filled air. I spent a little time there yesterday and began to understand “the light” that artists relish. Now I am inspired to create a garden with intentional lines, shapes, textures, and hues for me to paint and to invite people to come and enjoy.
