Rue Claude Monet

Rue Claude Monet
9 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Another in my Giverny series.  This is a view I passed by each day on my way to the gardens. It's the main street in Giverny, "Rue Claude Monet".

I notice I am continually drawn to the same subjects over and over- flowers/lush foliage, sunlight, some architecture/stone as a bit of contrast.  I love a soft, romantic, dreamy state.

About 15 years ago I started a journal to help me uncover what really spoke to me as far as subject matter to paint- and these were the same things that I enjoyed painting most then. Over the years, I  have explored other subjects- figures, city scenes with lots of geometric architecture, even abstracts, but I always come back home to the subjects that fill my heart and lift my spirits. I hope you find these images uplifting too! ( For me that's what art is all about!)
