WATER LILY:  The Nymphaéas cycle is a part of Monet's water landscape group that he started working on in the late 1890s. A scientific term for a Water Lily and Classical myth that attributes the birth of the flower to a nymph and Classical Greek Mythology.

This overall series occupied Monet until his death 30 years later and includes dozens of canvases creating a panorama of water, lilies, and sky in his studio inspired by his Giverny garden. Monet describes his goals for the project:

"Imagine a circular room, whose walls are entirely filled by a horizon of water spotted with these plants. Walls of transparency - sometimes green, sometimes verging on mauve. The silence and calm of the water reflecting the flowering display; the tones are vague, deliciously nuanced, as delicate as a dream."

... working within Monet's 'Circular' idea, this workshop will have it's participants painting in the round. Circular Wood Canvases can be purchased from Duthy Street the day; Cost is around $50.
