If you can't tell already, one of my favorite artists is Monet. I just adore the color palette he used. And I'm a bit jealous of that beautiful garden that was the subject of so many of his paintings. I started to think about what it that garden must be like in Spring, how it must smell and how I would love to just sit on a bench with a cup of tea for the afternoon there. It's Winter where I am right now, so I decided to paint what I imagine it looks like on an early spring morning when there might be a little fog and some frost.
