A Monet Year
My sister-in-law (who also lives in France, but four hours north) gave me a cool daily calendar for Christmas - every day in 2006 I get to see a different Monet painting, in color! It tells me when he painted it, the medium, and where it is now located. Sprinkled through the year are some B&W photos of Monet himself as well. I love Monet, as N knows, from reading this here blog.
My favorite featured painting so far is from January 2nd: The Magpie (see left). David took this photo on a Musée d'Orsay visit in September 2004. Notice the top of Emily's head :-)
From the calendar I am also learning the words for the days of the week in German, and how to say holiday names in eight languages. I love Europe. Thanks, N.
