I’m so excited about an exhibit I’m having next week at Woodland Gardens in Manchester, Ct., between 5:00pm and 7:00pm on Thursday, May 3rd.
Last Spring, I traveled to France and visited Giverny where my favorite Impressionistic painter, Claude Monet lived and worked. I spent half a day photographing the town and the gardens where he painted. It was truly inspiring to walk the paths where he walked and view the light he saw on a daily basis. I look at his paintings of the Water Lilies with a new awe. I find inspiration in all that he painted, not just his water garden but his portraits of his family and friends. I hope you can see his influence in some of my earlier location portraits. You must travel and experience the magic of Monet’s Garden. It’s a magnificent place with so much to see and feel. I look forward to my return trip there.
Thursday Evenings in the Garden begin Thursday, May 3, at Woodland Gardens of Manchester. This two-month-long series includes a weekly garden topic of discussion, occasional exhibits by local artists, refreshments, and more. On May 3, photographic artist Lynn A. Damon of Glastonbury will exhibit her floral photography from 5 to 7 p.m. At 5:45 p.m., Woodland Gardens perennial specialist Sue Ferrante will talk about “Perennials to add interest to your shade garden.” Refreshments will be served and store coupons will be given to all visitors. More info call the store at860-643-8474.
Here I am fooling around in the gift shop at Monet’s museum. I love this photo, it looks like I have Monet in the palm of my hand! See you at the show!
