Well I'm here in Paris having an amazing time.  Despite my jet lag I have been pounding the pavement the last few days trying to take everything in.   Everywhere you turn there is something awe inspiring.  I just want to paint every street scene.

Here is Notre-Dame.

With incredible it's incredible facade.  This is part of the Portac of St. Anne as you are walking in the door.

Once you are inside there is stained glass at every turn capturing your attention.

  I made my first trip to the Louvre yesterday.  I was there when it opened and ran to the Grande Gallerie with everyone else to get my 10 seconds with "Mona".  I could then relax and take in and contemplate all the other work that fills the Denon wing.

Like Ghirlandaio's "Portrait of an Old Man and a Boy"

and Caravaggio's "The Fortune Teller".

The "Venus de Milo" did not disappoint.

The ceilings were absolutely breathtaking and more elaborate as you went on.

I can't wait to see Versailles tomorrow.

I'll try to post more photos when I get a chance...the Wi Fi is pricey and a bit tempermental.

See you soon.
