In the late 1970’s Vincent Farrell began to travel and see the world. It was one of his most inspirational periods. This painting was inspired by the water gardens of Claude Monet in Giverny, France and was one of my father’s most cherished painting trips. After much study and many drawings this painting was created in 1980.
