The Louvre Visit

Went to the Louvre. Breathtaking art. Happened upon this large, gorgeous canvas. What was the lady doing to the doves? Pulling them apart or instigating copulation? ??? Adjusted my glasses and saw the wooden plaque, Venus, from the 1500's. Frames are art at the Louvre. Unbelievable works. While we did see lots of paintings, this time I got to see more sculpture. I will share more of it later.


  1. just hanging out in the nude ....love it....thanks for the details....really brings it home...must have been fabulous!...been almost 40 years since I was there...but it was soooo fine!

  2. When you hang out in the country, you can hang any way you want. Don't know about the soldier heading her way. I'd have to jump up and run like a line-backer.
