Monet’s Waterlilies and portraits full of color!

We had a wonderful opportunity to put Tino’s color lesson in to practice at the Musée de l’Orangerie with Monet’s expansive, breathtaking Waterlily paintings, at the carnival at the Tuileries Garden with the brightly colored rides and vibrantly dressed carnival-goers, and in the streets of Paris on our way to the European House of Photography in the Marais!

Oh, and during our picnic lunch in the Tuileries Garden, we spotted and overheard Natalie Portman! What a wonderful day!
