Musee d’Orsay

I did more in France than take pictures of bus stops named after famous scientists. Here are a few of my favorite paintings from the Musee d’Orsay:

Regatta at Argenteuil, Claude Monet, www.artrenewal.org, Musee d’Orsay. I’ve always wondered why there is a giant penguin hiding behind the bushes to the right of the house.
