I am working on a large commission with Monet and it
brought to mind that I painted this one and never posted it.
I do save some for a rainy day when I am really busy.

I can just imagine sitting here looking out at Monet's
Japanese Bridge and water lilies among all the beautiful
assortment of tress and other colorful flowers.
Imagine walking thought this coral path through the
Gardens of Giverny!

After a long walk on a sunny day, kicking off my shoes
and enjoying some summer tea,
I wonder what  music could be created on this
piano for Monet. Can you hear it?

Enjoy
Music Tea Monet and Me!

Claude Monet noticed the village of Giverny while looking out of a train window. He made up his mind to move there and rented a house and the area surrounding it. In 1890 he had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lily, the wisterias and the azaleas. Monet lived in the house with its famous pink crushed brick fa├žade from 1883 until his death in 1926. He and many members of his family are interred in the village cemetery.

With the support of the prefecture, Monet had the first small pond dug ; even though his peasant neighbors were opposed. They were afraid that his strange plants would poison the water.
Later on the pond would be enlarged to its present day size. The water garden is full of asymmetries and curves. It is inspired by the Japanese gardens that Monet knew from the prints he collected avidly.
