Where did Claude Monet get his inspiration from?

Claude Monets home and garden is still there to get this question answered

His house and garden are both so inspirational

His house is bigger than I expected it to be, I really love his dining area

The big table in the middle, must have seated many of his beloved friends and family

And his garden is enourmous, full of beautiful plants, trees andΒ flowers

Many layers of colours and shapes, giving so much inspiration

In his work, his pond is much painted

I can see the inspiration he got out of it

The lake is still full of colors, even though its October

You can sit there at the many seats in his garden and look hours to the wonderful and peaceful living painting, in Monets garden
