“Sur Rue Claude Monet, Givernyā€¯ 8x10in. Acrylic on stretched canvas.

I visited Giverny, in Upper Normandy, France. Giverny is the birthplace of Impressionism and was the home of Claude Monet from 1883-1926. This window overlooks the street named for Monet, and is just a few blocks from his house. It was overcast and chilly on this particular morning in October, and hot coffee was the order of the day.

This place, sadly, has been remodeled since I was there. It was at first a country grocery, then a cafe-bar during Monet’s time, and now a bed and breakfast called “Le Coin des Artistes.” I’m glad I came across it before the renovation.

The title translates to: “On Claude Monet Street, Giverny.”
