Claude Monet's Giverny palette was the inspiration for "Monet's Garden" 48x78, "Monet's Garden 2" 48x78, and "Monet's Pond" 26x48, which already sold to a corporate client through Mahler Fine Art in Raleigh NC.
I want to absorb a room full of these large pictures before I release them to one of the galleries that represent me. I am currently building a viewing room in my studio to immerse myself in. I recall the feeling I had when I spent an afternoon viewing Monet's lily paintings in the Musee de L'Orangerie in Paris; not that I will have the fantastic oval room of L'Orangerie or try to create wide-spread pictures like Monet; though I have been recently commissioned to paint a sixteen-foot painting. The saying "if you build it they will come" is a phrase I have taken to heart and it has motivated me to create a series and possibly explore other impressionists palettes to expand my visual color vocabulary.
