Impressions of the Day

Song - Con te Partiro by Andrea Bocelli

Last Sunday Mr. B and I went to the Legion of Honor in San Francisco to see the Intimate Impressionism show from the National Gallery, Washington DC which they are remodeling.

Not Washington....but the Gallery.

Just thought I might have confused you there......

It was lovely and there were many great pieces but I did have a few favorites.

There are several pieces that I wanted to share with you....

The Artist's Sister at a Window by Berthe Morisot

The Artists Paint Box and Moss Roses by Edouard Vuillard


Argenteuil by Claude Monet

Detail of Argenteuil 

Just look at those yummmmy colors!

Table Set in a Garden by Pierre Bonnard

I can just see myself sitting in that garden having a cup of tea.

The last two are probably my favorites because they are just so painterly!

Then Mr. B took me for coffee and cheesecake at Caffe Trieste because I have been commissioned to do a painting of the little coffee house and I needed some reference material.

And then I took Mr. B across the street to......

Church !

This is actually the Nuova Porziuncola at the National Shrine of Saint Francis and is a scaled replica of St. Francis's Porziuncola in Assisi, Italy.

As we were driving home, we both felt like we had a mini European vacation!

Without Chevy Chase!!!

"For it is in giving that we receive." --St. Francis of Assisi

If Aspen Trees Could Talk....

OK, OK, OK.  I know what you are thinking. 

Jeanette has gone off her rocker.

But just wait a minute.

Great eye, right?

After a month in the mountains without much to do but relax and enjoy nature, your mind gets to thinking.......


Confucius says......."sit back and enjoy a moment of silliness"

A surprised eye!!!


These two are joined at the hip!

One eyed man blowing smoke rings

Ancient Hieroglyphics

A Bear scratching tree

Everyone needs a hug now and then!

EYE see you two hugging over there!

"I see them hugging too, how about a big kiss?"

A one eyed alien critter attacks tree in Tahoe!

Take a hard left & go straight, until you come to a Y in the road

Somebody got a light?

Oh dear.  How did I get this stick in my forehead?

Ring around the rosy.....

Frankenstein or stitches?

Mom said she had to take my temperature before I can play

There is a bear with sharp claws in the forest

OK.  I know I'm not an Aspen BUT that's gotta hurt!

Home Sweet Home for mama & babies
