Louvre, Olympism - Modern Invention, Ancient Legacy

The Louvre facade on Rue de Rivoli
Unknown5:25 PM 
A wonderful post, as are ALL of yours!! I especially love your photos taken at art exhibitions! I feel as though I am there. In the Olympic spirit, would you consider a post devoted to the Olympism show at the Louvre?
I said sure and got on the #7 headed to the Louvre (open till 9 pm Friday nights). FYI during the Olympics everyone must have designated time slot. Staff are helpful navigating the process.

Naturalement I brought along the Olympics Letter to check athletic poses for accuracy.

La Roseraie du Val-de-Marne, 3-Day 🌹Sale, Confiture Parisienne, Lancôme Cafe de la Rose

Watercolor Artist studio with rose paintings
This past week was ROSE WEEK 🌹

Overhead view of La Roserair du Val-de-Marne gardens
Last Sunday I headed out to La Roseraie de Val-de-Marne to paint the roses 🌹 Take ligne 7 to last stop, Villejuif-LouisAragon end of the line. Then bus 172 (in front) for 10+ minutes to Sous-Prefecteur Eglise etc. It was windy, cold and looked about to rain any second. I got back on the 7train & came home 🏡

Peonies in Paris

Artist studio with peony watercolors and peony still lives
On Friday someone commented,” Carol, i just love your peony watercolour sketches! Will you be offering them for purchase? I think of them as "A Suggestion of Peonies." 🌸 

A seed was planted. Late at the Sunday Bastille marché, finally headed home, loaded with pamplemousse, I noticed the flower stand was packing up.
