artist date = monet's gardens

 today we took metro, train, and bus to giverny to see monet's home and gardens. when i stepped into his gardens, my heart skipped a beat.
 this photo is postcard perfect and a great resemblance to monet's beautiful work we know and love.
 savoring the view on the stoop of monet's pink house. oui, PINK!
 more japanese bridge + waterlilies.
and more. 

i fell in love with monet during my post-college backpacking trip nearly 20 years ago. it was truly surreal to be in the setting of his inspiration. the colors and scents of the fleurs were breathtaking. what a perfect artist date!  

have you been indulging in artist dates? if so, share. if not, schedule one! your soul will thank you. bisous. x

Loved seeing this ... could almost pretend I was there with you! Beautiful how much the bridge photo resembles his work.
