Les disciples Pierre et Jean courant au sepulcre le matin de la Resurrection

Well, I made it back from Paris safe and sound. The trip was INCREDIBLE! But right now I am suffering from too much jet lag to blog much, so I will leave you with this post of my favorite painting that I saw while on my trip. The small scale does not enable one to see the emotion the artist captured in the eyes of Peter and John.

MCM, I thought of you while i was over there. I walked through the fabric and needlework depts at Printemps and Galleries du Lafayette. Let me tell you, those French ladies are into some serious sewing!

Thanks Christopher. I really wish that it captured the full poignancy of the original.
