Having computer issues tonight, so I hope I can get the 
photo of the Monet painting I photographed at the Musée
D'Orsay.  Got it! Not in the most direct way, so if I have time
and the opportunity to edit it later, I will. 

I wondered why I'd never seen this work before at the 
Musée D'Orsay in Paris, and it was because the painting 
was donated in 2022. How exciting. Another work by 
Monet, featuring one of my favourite blue colours.

I do love the freshness and spontaneity of Monet, even
though he would redo work again and again. So seeing
this was a thrill.

Have a loving your life day.

Such a gorgeous painting - inspires one to have a pond and paint waterlilies ;). And to visit Paris again....

Especially to visit Paris again. So much fun!
