Monet painted landscapes and garden scenes that are still some of the most appreciated art sold and collected.

Many do not realize the time he spent studying light and color and then setting up his garden to get the look he wanted. The pieces he created were a study on gardening. He studied flowers, textures, lighting and colors. He would research different plants to get the results he wanted. He also worked on how to capture nature and beauty on canvas.

The you tube video below gives you a small example of the color and beauty of his gardens.

Monet’s works do not seem to age they mature and grow each year and reach out and touch more generations.
