Hi all, Here are a few more photos from my Paris trip.
The top left photo is the view from inside the entry way of the Louvre, isn't that a great view?
And the other two photos are from inside the Louvre.
On the day before our return home, we decided to go hang out in the Louvre for one last time and as we entered the huge Ruebens hall we came upon this young man painting a reproduction of one of the paintings! We were sooo enthralled with the whole idea that someone was even allowed to do this, that we just stood for quite awhile obeserving him! I don't think he even noticed we were there. He was so intent with every stroke he put on that canvas, he was definetely in the "artists zone".
I could kick myself though because I didn't get a photo of the Ruebens masterpiece that he was copying!
As we proceeded on our way into the other rooms we would see even more artists copying the masters but all the rest of them had "no photos" signs on their easels.
So we just looked and ohhhed and ahhhhed over their talent.
Can you imagine having an opportunity to paint in the Louvre, amongst all the great masterpieces? It would totally be an honor.
Of course, we felt totally honored too, as we
gazed upon each painting and sculpture. A true adventure and an experience we will never forget.
talk to you soon,
