Giverny Epiphany

Created for the TMI Group's challenge, "In the Style of Monet, Gaugin or Rousseau".

 

********* A special dedication to our dear friend, Gerard ( Pifou ). Light for brighter days and healing, Gerard !!! **********

 

Claude Monet created some very large, long horizontal paintings in his "Giverny" period, some of which are housed in New York's MoMA, where I've personally seen them. These stunning pieces are 'immersive' in their effect and represent some of the artist's greatest work. While my piece here is a lot more 'concrete' than the MoMA's waterlillies at this viewing range, it might be fun to wonder that if this was blown up to a similar size it might also 'dissolve' into abstraction. This 'epiphany' is a deeply felt homage to Monet and his extraordinary talent for light and colour.

 

The original shot was taken on Jericho Road outside of Carleton Place, about an hour's drive west of Ottawa.

 

Too bad this will only be seen about 20" across instead of 20 ft !!!
