Louvre, Rodin, Deyroll
Because of the torrential downpour, I did not bring my heavy Nikon to the Louvre but am thrilled with all these iPhone pictures!
This detail of this crazy green and pink painting looks SO CONTEMPORARY but it is not.
This is my favorite picture so far in Paris - Egyptian hands:
elin and Harper on the metro going to the Louvre
Guthrie happy at a sphinx
Guthrie's photograph of a sphinx:
Another favorite of mine, by Harper:
Harper studying the map of the Louvre
The floor at the Louvre:
The Mona Lisa
Saint Lucy, for Mark Alice Durant
Man playing boule in the garden at Palais Royal:
Daniel Buren courtyard at a temporary performance space at Palais Royal
Corinne and Madeleine at Daniel Buren
elin + Madeleine at Daniel Buren
David and the kids Dancing to Ingrid Michaelson's, "everybody everybody wants to love, everybody everybody wants to be loved...." when daddy got home early from an overnight trip to Lyon....
Corinne with our cocktails at Palais Royal face - a mojito for her, a campari pamplemousse (grapefruit) for me and a cointreau bubbles for my sister Madeleine
Deyroll, a crazy incredible shop since the early 1800s of taxidermied animals, insect and butterfly specimens, garden paraphenelia, and perfume, of course! (No photos allowed of the taxidermied animals.)
A very cool show at Galerie Maeght - this Peruvian artist was my favorite, gouache on antique Italian prints
Guthrie's amazing mask drawing
Kathy Hudson, I didn't know you were in Paris!
Madeleine and Guthrie on the metro on the way to the Louvre
Madeleine and the kids trying to build the Eiffel Tower

Saw the Joel Peter Witkin show at the Bibliotheque Nationale and sometimes I really do not like him.
