Water Lilies

Musée de L'Orangerie | Claude Monet "Water Lilies"
Such serene and tranquil paintings by Monet

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged here. I haven’t gotten into the groove yet. I’ve also been travelling to a couple of places since early this year – that means more content in the coming months! Nevertheless, I’m trying to blog today. Yesterday, I returned from my trip to Paris and every time I come back from that wonderful city I feel inspired (hence, the blogging haha). Paris is one of my favourite cities to visit, even though I’ve been there a couple of times already. It’s a beautiful city with delicious pastries and desserts. Oh, and I can’t forget about the baguettes! For some reason, I can never stop eating it! It’s so good! As much as I try to eat healthily, I love carbs.

 

While in Paris, I visited a few museums. Something I haven’t done in the past visits. The photo above was taken at Musée de l’Orangerie, in front of one of the “Water Lilies” (or Les Nymphéas in French) oil paintings by French Impressionist Claude Monet. It’s one of my favourite artworks by Monet. Actually, “Water Lilies” is a series of about 250 oil paintings depicting Monet’s flower garden in Giverny. Musée de l’Orangerie is a permanent home to eight murals of “Water Lilies” by Monet. I recommend a visit to this museum if you go to Paris!
