Les Nymphéas

This really needs a panorama or 3D lenses to appreciate. This entire space was created for this one set of canvases. Here are some parts of the work for more close inspection.

The Louvre, the Opera, and Bofinger

A day of oppulence for both mind and sight. Musée du Louvre We were lucky enough to get into le Louvre this morning before the lines got too bad. We jumped onto a “Rick Steves” (he’s from the PNW you know) audio guided tour on Apple Podcasts and it was great.

New Favorite Painting

We are wandering the Louvre today looking big at the Italian, French, Greek, and Roman wings. I found a great painting by Andrea Montegna called Minerva chases the vices out of the garden of Virtue.
