   Yes, it finally arrived! I love, love, love beautiful, romantic movies allow me to imagine that I could be transported to their time. Berthe Morisot and Manet by Caroline Champetier is such a movie. It's been on my list of "wants" that I keep for my husband for a long while, but he seemed to have a hard time finding it as it was a made-for-TV French movie. 

          Well, not too long ago, I was surprised with it and I've watched it several times since. It is in French with no subtitles, so I can make guesses as to what they are saying. It's helped that I've read a great deal on both artists and that the movie is gorgeous, so I can't take my eyes off of it to get clues. The painting above is inspired by this beautiful movie, which I am still pinching myself to make sure that I do really get to watch it.

     REMINDER: If you are registered to receive e-mail updates regarding my latest work and have not registered in the last week, I hope you will please do so. Several of you have let me know that you have not gotten e-mail updates in months. As I tried to fix the problem, I found that it can't be fixed. So, I am switching service to MailChimp. I hope you will give me a few days after you've registered to make sure you are off the old mailing list. Once again, I thank you SOOOOOOOOO very much for your interest in my artwork and your constant inspiration. Have a lovely day.
