For Mothers Day, my daughter bought me 2 tickets to the Monet Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. She took me this morning.
It was excellent and especially having been to his garden in Giverny, France, made it extra special.
I didn't realise that Claude Monet was nearly blind towards the end of his painting career with cataracts.
As his eyesight deteriorated, he couldn't see blues, pinks and light green, he painted in dark browns and reds until he was given yellow lenses in his glasses and saw the colours again.
Overlooking the Yarra to Flinders Street and Fed Square.
After, John and Emma took me to Miyake at Southbank for a Japanese lunch.
