This is a photo of the painting Berthe Morisot by Manet it is in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris. Yes, I have been lucky enough to have been to Paris not only once but twice. On my second trip my only request was to see the Musee d'Orsay since J and I missed it when we were there for our honeymoon, back when the dollar was worth more than a euro. I just found out I was pregnant before I left for the second trip.
My whole desire to go there was I had wanted to see paintings by Monet, and this beauty by Manet struck me. I was in absolute awe and didn't know why. I stared at her and she stared back, I took her photo in case I couldn't find something of her in the gift shop. I'm glad I did, I only found something in a Museum book, which I of course bought.
I hadn't thought much about her until I was looking through my Paris photos for todays post, when it hit me. When she caught my eye was she giving me and insight to what was to come. Was she giving me a glimpse of who Peanut Butter might be before she was born? Is that why I was so taken with her?
