But, I'm taking a few quiet moments this morning, to turn this post into a brief respite, a small taste of an exquisite exhibit of Impressionist paintings that we were recently privileged to see.
Joslyn Art Museum had a special exhibit of some Impressionist paintings, courtesy of The Clark. It was lovely. There's nothing like spending a Saturday morning wandering around a museum in the midst of such beauty. It truly takes my breath away to see, in person, a painting that I have previously seen only in print.
The kids' favorites from the exhibit:
Renoir, At the Concert
Manet, Moss Roses in a Vase
Renoir, A Girl Crocheting
I feel so blessed to have the Joslyn so close to us. They have an impressive permanent collection that one might be surprised to find in Nebraska. Just a short distance from my home, I can go see this one by Renoir anytime:
Young Girls at the Piano
Or this, The Knitting Girl, by Bouguereau
Or Breton's The Weeders:
Well ... you get the idea.
I wanted to post these, because I want to remember that in the middle of a busy, crazy, overscheduled month, we got to rest in this kind of beauty.
