The two paintings that really resonated with me were The Artist's Garden at Giverny III and The Garden Path at Giverny. I love the idea of the path leading up to his house bringing some of the garden into his home. Then I saw pictures of his house and entry way and found that more intriguing. I could just picture him walking down those stairs with his whole garden in front of him full of creative possibilities.

It seemed like a tall order to get done in a month. Still, I had some good advice from Margaret Blank who commented to me, "remember when you were in EB's class and had to pick an inspirational source, do sketches, block out and create a piece in a month? Yes? Well, then...! GO girl!" Don't you love good advice and encouragement from smarter women than you? So I guess I better get it done!
Psssssssss.. . . .the initial sketch is done and I was going to pick out the fabrics but thought I better get this post in on time for change!!!
Thank you all again for the nice well-wishing and the patience with this blog while I was sick. I'm almost 100% and getting my life back on track!!
So what have been up to creatively?
