Inspired by her love of nature, Akshita captured the stunning beauty of Monet’s lily pond in Giverny, France. The Giverny paintings are best viewed from a distance and showcases the technical skill of Lad’s impressionist style in capturing accurate depiction of light and form using thin yet visible brushstrokes. The painting of the landscape is more than just what is seen, but is also about the emotion Akshita felt in the presence of the sheer beauty of Monet’s garden. Akshita is drawn to water lilies and water gardens because of the feelings they evoke – they bring a sense of calm to an otherwise hectic day, a peaceful tranquility that can be difficult to find in today’s world.
