Friday Fave

Between the Gulf Shores vacation and my mom visiting last weekend, I'm still trying to adjust to my everyday schedule...which is much harder said than done!

I thought what better way to get back into the groove then sharing an old favorite by renowned French Impressionist artist Claude Monet.  I was first introduced to Monet-and to this painting-through Cristina Bjork's books Linnea's Almanac - she also wrote Linnea in Monet's Garden.  Not only did it inspire my green thumb, but it also heavily influenced my passion for art.  As a child and now as an adult, I still adore Monet's works.  Each brushstrokes is exquisite and the colors are vivid.  His paintings are alive and breathtaking...even as an image!

Have a wonderful weekend!
