We concluded our afternoon with a trip to the Musee de l'Orangerie on the grounds of the Louvre gardens. Containing a tribute to Monet's Water Nympheas series that took over 4 years for him to paint. They fill the walls of 2 long oval rooms. The link here will give you a teaser. www.musee-orangerie
So that was a good ending for our Monet day.

The one thing I've learned on this trip to France with other media Plein Aire painters is that the still life artist in me and the vignette lover in me has much to practice in my landscape cp work to feel comfortable. I did stick to my guns and worked small the whole time 5 X 7 or 4 X 6. A few I've shown here or will how in the next few weeks to come. So stay tuned for more.
