“Monet’s Garden” by Vincent Farrell ca. 1980


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.

    • Well painting is something that takes a great deal of practice so I am sure you are able to try it! no one starts out painting like Rembrandt or Monet! My father was a wonderful teacher, a bit difficult at times on his students, yet, he had a knowledge of art that was so vast and he was great at demystifying the process of painting and drawing. Thank you for your lovely complements. We will become upon the 4th anniversary of my father’s death. Just would have been so nice to have him around for a little while longer. Please stay in touch!
      kind regards,
