I was delighted with Doreen's choice for the May Calendar Girls challenge. This was the picture she chose.
This was a Monet I had never seen before, I thought the colours quite unusual as I generally think of his paintings as being greens and mauves and pinks. Years ago I was fortunate to live in Paris for a while. This was before the new museum at the Quai d'Orsay(which I must visit one day). One of my favourite walks was to the the Jeu de Paume museum on the Place de La Concorde which housed Impressionist paintings and to the Orangerie which housed Monets huge canvases Les Nympheas that made you feel as though you were underwater.
You can visit here Thanks for stirring some lovely memories Doreen.
So here is my card for Susan
I painted canvas and then applied velvet "lillies" and filled in the background with different weights of thread.
