Promenade sur la Rue Claude Monet

Well life has taken an interesting turn for me this past month. My lack of posting would suggest that I have been away from the studio, but that is not the case. In fact, I feel as if I have become a permanent studio fixture, getting up at 5 a.m. and painting whenever I can find the hours before and after the hubby goes to work and my daughter goes to sleep.

“But where are the paintings, then?”, you may ask. Well, the work I’m referring to is more commercial in nature. I can perhaps post more on that in time, but not at the moment. Suffice it to say, that up to now,  I haven’t had much time for my own “personal” work this year.

Nevertheless, things are normalizing (for now), and I have been able to return to my easel to finish a painting I started some time around New Year’s Day.

Hollyhocks always make me think of France. I have tried growing them in my own garden but they always seem to get overtaken by rust. Maybe my garden is altogether too crowded or too moist, because in many parts of France they always seem to be growing out of what looks to me to be dry rock! This is a street in Giverny that leads to Claude Monet’s famous home and gardens. The street is aptly named Rue Claude Monet, and is itself the subject for many potential paintings. I will add updated info about this painting to my website later today, but for now, please contact me with any inquiries.

  1. She’s BACK! So glad to see this post. Looks like life is treating you well.
    I’m still taking watercolor classes at RU, but just got my oil paints out for some spring painting (when I can open the windows). Come visit my site….
    You gave me the courage ….confidence to start painting after a 30+ years absence. Take care!

  2. So good to hear from you Jeannie. your site and paintings look great. Beautiful job! You have been a busy lady! Me too. Not sure if I am coming or going right now but it’s all good. I really miss my blog and connecting with such great folks like you.

  4. Thank you CM! It brings back some pretty fond memories for me too, as I have been such a homebody lately. But things are simmering and I hope to be a more active traveler by next year! Love, Jen
