Art and Nature

Yesterday, we went to the Denver Botanic Gardens and found, much to the delight of String Bean, a water garden with a myriad of water lilies floating on the pond. String Bean loves water lilies and water gardens, primarily because her favorite artist is Claude Monet! She has loved his works for a couple of years now and has collected pictures and books about this famous Impressionist.

We used up many digital pictures, trying to get a good shot at one of the waterlilies. When we got home I was asked to IMMEDIATELY load the pictures so she'd have something to study and work from.

Here's the result of her morning's work:
By the way, she created the "easel" from scraps of wood left from a renovation project dh and I are working on (more about that if we EVER finish!)
