Impressionist and others

I spent a delightful day with my daughter-in-law strolling through Monet's garden and over the Japanese  footbridge.
Well, not really, but we did see Monet, Renoir, Degas, Manet, Van Gogh, and many of their friends. There is a wonderful show at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. "Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the National Gallery of Art. It was great to get up close and see those impressive  brush strokes. A new feature (at least for us) was the ability to call a number on your cell phone and get some information on several of the pieces, as you stand in front of them. Wonders never cease!
