I think he chose the garden because it was full of life and color. His paintings were made to be full of life.

I think that Monet chose to use this garden as inspiration because it is the ideal form of nature. A creek, beautiful flowers and trees, and the vibrant colors all are what nature should be like. There is little human influence over this location.

I think Monet chose the gardens at Giverny because they were exceptionally beautiful. He also seemed to enjoy painting pictures of flowers and other plants, and there many plants there. He also enjoyed painting light sparkling over water, so he probably enjoyed painting the creek with the bridge.

I think Monet chose the Giverny Gardens because of the important emotional value that it has to him. He was only able to afford the house and garden when people started to like his paintings, so it would connect the garden with success in his mind. His children also often went rowing in the pond, perhaps symbolising love.
