memories from the Louvre.

Some of the sweetest memories of my life were spent in France my junior year of college...On our week trip to Paris from the countryside in Provence, one of the many things we did of course, was getting lost at the Louvre. While there were many beautiful things to see, I must say I could have spent almost all my time with the Flemish still lifes, by artists like Snyders, Utrecht, and Jan de Heem...It was the combined pleasure of the brilliant colors, the preciseness, and the juxtaposition of so many quirky things within one frame, that contributed to my slight obsession with these beautiful works. I hope you enjoy these pictures from my trip!
