Upon my discharge from the service, I had a season of languid days on the grass in the remote country very near the shore of Lake Superior pouring over a pocket book on Impressionism. It was in a place not unlike in your painting on one of my travels that I decided upon art as a profession. I was visiting a friend who was rarely at home, and while alone, I had the stereo speakers sitting in the windows, turned outward to the yard. As I listened to symphonies by Rachmaninoff, Grieg and Liszt, I found myself matching those paintings in the book to the scenes around me. And then there was a cascade of yet unpainted pictures welling up inside. The call of the muse was irrefutable. So it appears I got drafted again, but into a very different service.

Super feeling in this painting! We all had our Claude Monets one form or another, eh, Pat?
You captured the mood beautifully.

I always felt as if his paintings were alive, Pat. I love his work too.
Beautiful painting, and so peaceful.

Fine tribute to a great master. Combination of colors give this a great feel. Your signature is subtle and blends very well without any distraction. Well done Pat.........

I also love Monet. It was one of the best adventures of my life to go to Giverny. It was amazing to see in person some of the scenes that he had painted. Very lovely Pat.
