Monet and His Friends

Giverny, the home of Monets home and garden drew many American painters, who wanted to paint there as well.  They needed a place to stay.  So the local grocer whose name was Baudy started renting rooms. His hotel is now a restaurant with a replica of the painting studio and beautiful gardens where we painted last night.  

The haystacks in the first photo on the left top are in the gardens of the Museum of Impressionism where we went to see a wonderful exhibit of Belgian Impressionist painters.
