Impressions…

Leave a comment

So I came to Paris…dropped in at the Musee d’Orsay (or M’O for those in the know)…and, yet again, I fell in love with Impressionism…on a wall in front of me were five of Monet’s paintings of the Rouen Cathedral, each in a different color scheme and I got tears in my eyes. My world is blurry anyway…but now I am looking at everything as if it is an impression.
Have you ever noticed the color of museum walls? At M’O, not one white wall…all aubergine, or dark sage, or dark grey making those pictures in their gilt fancy frames pop off the wall…paint your walls, people, they need some color.
…can’t help myself…even my photos have turned into impressions…
