Monet: Bridge, Irises, Lady with Parasol
We interrupt the detailed blow-by-blow of Katherine's medical life to bring you some culture. From the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, some of Katherine's favorite Monet paintings, caught without flash (as required) in the dim museum lighting.

Mmmm. Musee d'Orsay. Love it. They have a collection of Toulouse-Lautrec, my favorite, but the Monets are hard to pass up.

Nice captures. I love museums that allow photography. Art Institute of Chicago is the first big one I've encountered that did. It's weird how a picture you shot yourself can bring the painting more to mind than a professionally produced (and much better quality) postcard or rendering in a book.

Mmmm...nothing like seeing the real thing in person. I'll never forget coming around a corner at the Art Institute of Chicago and being face to face with a Van Gogh self portrait. Seeing it up close - the actual brush strokes! - brought tears to my eyes.

That's my most favorite of all the museums I've been to. My husband and I went there on our first trip to Paris when we lived in Germany. The Bridge Painting has always been a favorite of my husband's. His favorite color is green.
