BONJOUR DE PARIS!


Bonjour de Paris!

Can you guess who I visited today?
La Joconde (AKA Mona Lisa) was first on my list when I arrived at Le Louvre this morning.
I spent all day in the grand museum and am fairly certain I could spend the rest of my life there.

More to come!

THE UNKNOWN PAINTING





I scooped this sweater at one of my favorite vintage outposts in the Village, instantly recognizing the image from Art History.  However, try as a might, I cannot identify this painting!  I've scoured the internet and sourcebooks and cannot uncover the title or artist of this work.

HELP!  Do you know this painting?

PICASSO LADIES





It's overdue, but here's my Halloween costume: Picasso's Girl Before a Mirror!

For the Annual Members Party at the New Museum, two friends and I decided to emulate Picasso's paintings of women.  Meri was Dora Maar, Kathy was Woman with a Book, and I was the stunning masterpiece pictured above (which hangs at the Museum of Modern Art).

We had a fantastic evening challenging partygoers to guess who we were, and a few actually recognized my painting!  

Thanks to Kathy for her help with painting and for my friends for being great sports.

Hope you had a magnificent Halloween!
