Gateway to the Secret Garden

11-The Gateway in the Secret Garden in Frame

A young woman strolls through a secret garden, enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of this special place of sanctuary and reflection. It is her first time in this part of the garden, and to her surprise, there before her is an open gateway she hadn’t seen before.

The portal reminds her that she is at a crossroads in her life. She needs to make an important decision. Should she open to a new point of view and accept a new perspective? Will she move forward and go through the gateway, or will she turn back? That is the mystery that awaits her decision.

Sunrise at Giverny

The first light of day moves through the tall trees and illuminates Monet’s Japanese Bridge at Giverny. One of his boats can be seen moored by the shore, waiting for the master painter. This painting recreates the golden glow of morning as it contrasts against the cool blue and purples of the lily pond. As the sun’s ray traverse over the bridge, the weeping Willows and lilies are brought into view. The depth of the shadows and the golden, morning light provide a unique perspective, depicting the solitude and tranquility of the beautiful garden created by Monet.

Waiting for Matisse

15-Waiting for Matisse

As I sat in the restaurant gazing out at the Bay of Nice, I imagined what it would be like to have a conversation with Matisse, to learn about how he saw the world and his use of color and form. I then thought about how my surroundings would be transformed if Matisse were to paint this scene. Now imagine yourself joining her and Matisse, deciding what to choose from the menu, watching the sailboats catching a breeze and a village of white buildings reflecting the sunlight on the distant shore.
