Claude Monet's "Nympheas"

Claude Monet’s “Nympheas”

I have long been a fan of Claude Monet’s work. His joy in life; the way he uses colours and the serenity that lies within his paintings constantly inspire me.

Perhaps I paint my knitting to achieve the same feeling of life that is so much a part of his work.

Happy Dreaming
