Painting these floating geometric lily pads made me happy in my heart. Claude Monet’s Water Lilies were one of the first paintings I remember connecting with as a kid.

On a warm day during my elementary school years (I'm guessing around 3rd grade), my parents took my siblings and me to The Huntington Library and Gardens where we spent the day walking the gardens, slipping into exhibits when we needed a break from the sunshine and it's heat, and always a highlight for me- ending the afternoon in the museum gift shop.

Slowly making my way around each table display, eyes taking in every shelf, I'd always end up at the sections where boxed cards were piled high like castles and stationery sets were tucked into wall displays all in a row, beckoning me with their matching envelopes.

This is where I found the box of Claude Monet's note cards, each covered in his dreamy impressionist paintings, capturing land- and waterscapes with such gentleness, as if they were secrets that had been whispered onto canvas.

I still have the box the note cards came in and there are one or two I never did seem able to part with. 🤍
