Denver Art Museum Part 2 – Monet Exhibit

I’ve always loved Impressionism and Monet is a sentimental favorite for me because I have fond memories of a special exhibit that I went to with my mom at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Monet traveled extensively so his work includes paintings in London, Amsterdam, Norway, the French and Italian Riviera on the Mediterranean, Normandy, Paris, and of course Giverny where he lived and created his famous Water Lilies work.

Beautiful use of light and shadow
Monet does an excellent job using reflection on the water

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.

        1. Yes! I knew you were in Europe, and I remembered it was a country I haven’t visited yet. Paris is amazing and my favorite afternoon was spent in the room with the Water Lily murals (I’m not sure they’re called murals) at the Orangerie.
