Monet's Lily Pond

Fresh from my trip to France, this is a view of Monet's lily pond. I got to stand on his actual bridge overlooking this beautiful huge lily pond. I did this watercolor from one of my photos. I have many more views to paint from and will keep going. So much to paint and so little time!!

Mmmm, looks deep and cool and refreshing, imagine floating among the lilies... Ahhhhh! Good job, Vic! And I'm jealous you got to see this and I didn't!

I just got your blog painting of Monet's pond. It is a wonderful painting. The whole of it just floats around more than a lily on water. The more I look at just floats entirely, like it really isn't on canvas, like it's just in your mind. It's kind of a thought. A very nice thought to hold onto. One I will.

Hey, your Monet's Lily Pond painting is awesome! My sister used to have a Monet poster framed of the bridge over the lily pond. Will show this to her.
