As my first picture, I’d like to share with you one of my all times favorite: Claude Monet’s Water Lily Pond.
For this painting (and the paintings of this cycle) Monet took inspiration from Japanese gardens, gardens in which he thought it was possible to breathe peace, joy and eternity.
Curious fact: when Claude Monet moved to Giverny (France), he recreated a typical Japanese garden for himself, so that he could paint in harmony with a living dream.
For the readers: it is actually possible to go and visit Monet’s house and garden in Giverny. You just have to take a train from Paris. .
This hat is crocheted after a free Ravelry pattern by Sara Sach, “Summer Bucket Hat Crochet Pattern “, using “Giverny “ color-way of craft smart. This hat reminds me about my visit to Monet Garden in Giverny, France. It was late Oct last year. I was lucky to catch up the last open week. Monet Garden was still in its Fall glory. I dug up many photos taken in #giverny and only 9 can be uploaded in one IG post. A nostalgic hat.
The abysmal Paris weather has me dreaming of Giverny (like always). Claude Monet’s gardens live on as beautifully as he painted them at his foundation. Here’s a shot from his bedroom window as proof 🌼🌞🌸🎨
Hay sitios en los que siento que estoy a salvo, ¿de qué? Ese es otro tema. Caigo en un hechizo, el tiempo no es un problema, todo es mejor. Ocurría en casa de mi abuela, me pasa en los buenos museos. Las salas de Los Nenúfares son otra dimensión; flotante la luz natural del techo te sumerge, incluso el resto de vistantes dejan de ser molestos. "Es un espectáculo reparador del orden cósmico y la consolidación de la belleza"'. Misión cumplida la de Monet: realizar una obra de paz en un mundo de guerra.
