Critique below.

This painting is called The Artist's Garden in Giverny. It's beautiful. The use of every element of art is evident, and the way Monet uses them altogether is exquisite. There are tree trunks in the background made from lines. There is little definite shape in this composition, but there are some figures in the background that appear to be somewhat rectangular. Color is everywhere. There are pink and violet flowers, contrasting reds and greens in the trees, and there are blues, reds, and violets in the background. The horizon line is slightly above the middle of the canvas, leaving more ground than backgroundto begin with, and trees take up most of what would be more background. There are lights and darks scattered throughout the painting and are evenly spread out. The painting feels like it is soft and everything just flows well together. This painting puts me in a happy mood, and I know I've said it before, but I don't know why, but I can't stop feeling happy. It's probably the array of colors. It was created in France where Impressionism was popular at the time. Monet was born and was living in France at this time, also he had recently been making and selling a lot of paintings and had lots of money. He then bought a house in Giverny and began to remodel and remake the garden at the house. That is what motivated the painting. I wouldn't hang up too much art in my house, but I would like this one in my room. It would be visually appealing due to my room already being full of greens and blues. Also it's a really cool painting.
