This oil on canvas painting titled "The Artist's Garden at Giverny" was created by Claude Monet (1840-1926) in 1900. This is a picture of his gardens at his home in Giverny, France. It was said that his garderns were a source of inspiration for him as well as many other artists to this very day. While looking through images on Google, this one really jumped out at me. It is a very soft picture that reminds me of the springtime, my favorite time of year. The picture gives me a feeling of warmth and calmness, just as if you were on that path walking through the purple flowers.
