Musée De L'Orangerie

So cool , After being on my panorama binge, Patrice told me we were going somewhere secret.
It was such a surprise and so amazing to see these panoramic works of Monet at the Musée de L'Orangerie.
I did not know of these¿!? right, where have I been!
Just Amazing
visit the site to see a virtual tour and the history of the Museum
I loved the museum lighting for the painting was so beautiful and it was so cool to see the Master Impressionist in such a modern space.

Musée Rodin

Patrice took me to the Rodin Gardens.
It was so relaxing and peaceful to be in the gardens on such a beautiful day . I enjoy Rodin's work , there is a depth and proportion to his hand that I find so emotional.
In the second image I love how the sculpture falls into the garden with the trees and in the third how the stone becomes soft and sensual and in the fourth image , the more I look the more faces I see. It is really is amazing.
Inside the museum was a wonderful showing of Matisse and Rodin .

Paris Panorama

Maybe I am channeling a French Panoramic Painter.
I have been struck by the awesome beauty of the landscape the colors,reflections, shape and drama especially in the sky and water.
Its amazing to behold.
Normally in my work , Its paying attention to the small details but its refreshing to take in such a grand scene.
