Hi All,

Beautiful and peaceful. I particularly like the way you have framed the window with the flowers. :) Nora

Hello Artistry,
This is the first thing I saw in this forum, and what a great first thing to see it was! This is such an inspirational piece. I can almost feel the warm sun on me. You have done Monet's beautiful garden justice with this beautiful painting :)
(I too wish I could paint like this)

This is so beautiful, calming, breath taking and it looks like it was a lot of work too. ;) Mind if I ask how long you worked on this before you called it complete?:clap:

I painted this for a couple of days a few weeks ago. Then the big decision....when to stop! I made an effort to let the "paint be paint", keep the image loose, yet stuctured, to keep the life in it. After the two days of work, I gave it another day to just sit, revisited, and just touched up a couple of spots. Then varnished/framed it up.

Thanks for your messages!
