Today's painting is of a corner full of flowers in the village of Giverny, where Claude Monet made his home. It measures 8x8" and is oil on gallery wrapped canvas. The edges of this painting are finished off with a complimentary green color, so no other framing is needed:
I think it was probably Monet who started the trend of pink stucco houses with green shutters, but there are several buildings in this little town with this color combination. While I'm sure the plantings are intentional and well-planned, hollyhocks, roses, lilies, and other flowers seemed to just grow out of any available stone crevice in this town. I sure wish I could say the same for my own garden!
