|Liz Hutchinson's Summer in Giverny|
It was fun to sit in on her talk and pretend that I was back in school in an art history class. Liz started off with a brief explanation of her tie and shoes (which are both works of Impressionism in their own right). When Liz completed the mural for the Festival, she had some paint left over. Why not use it to create some works of wearable art??? Talk about having joie de vivre!!!

Liz also shared that Monet was quite the control freak. (Her words were a bit more gentle than that, but that's what I came away with.) Once he moved to Giverny (with his mistress, two children and six stepchildren), Monet painstakingly developed the vision of his gardens and was heavily involved in their planting and maintenance. I have the image of him physically building the Japanese bridge and setting the waterlilies just so in the pond. While this characteristic might not have made him much fun to live with, I can't complain about its results.
