Last day in Paris

Not a whole lot of time to write tonight; I leave for Atlanta in the morning. We spent all day today walking around Paris, savoring every minute of our last day here. It's 10:45 p.m., and we just got home from dinner--Kippy, Judith, Phil and I (Ann left us this morning). So instead of writing, I'm posting pictures. Lots of them, hoping they will speak for themselves. 

In case you don’t know what the modern structure with tunnels is, it’s the Pompidou, with its spectacular view of Paris. Here we saw the David Hockney retrospective and dined on the rooftop. What a glorious day. 

And how wonderful it has been to see Paris with artists. To spend hours and hours in the museums and only want to get together afterwards to hear each other's thoughts. To learn how inspired each other is (or not) and what they intend to do about it when they get home. 

So...about next year. "Mary Cassatt, An American in Paris," at the Jacquemart-Andre Museum from March 9-July 23, 2018.  My next workshop at La Bonne Etoile will be held some time during her show. Let me know if you want to be on the mailing list to hear when the dates are secured. 

Gotta go figure out how to make my luggage weigh less than 51 pounds. This may take a while.
