Respite in Pink --- Day 6/82

Walk: Marin Driving Day, Legion of Honor 
Distance: 1 mile, small yoga

Claude Monet, House on the River Zaan at Zaandam, 1871, Oil on Canvas, 18.77" x 29"

     Detail
For a respite Ciwt returned to the current Monet show still at the Legion.  Really nice to just enjoy the exhibition without having to be think of how she might present and talk about it to clients.

This little painting just captures the room and the viewers with its soft, sweet glow.  Even though done quite early in Monet's career (before Impressionism, of which he is considered the father), it is one of the most complex depictions of reflected in his entire body of work.
