Art à la Janeen



If you remember Holly and I stayed in Janeen's fabulous apartment in December, followed by Mary and Virginia in January. Needless to say we all fell in love with Janeen's quirky style, spectacular art, and her endearing personality.

The flat had Janeen's art in every room and corner... The petite cuisine had this display of "art" on the ledge above the counter greeting us each morning as we prepared our coffee. I believe that living with "art" enriches your life... Janeen does this in a big way!

Thanks so much for your visit today! Looking forward to hearing about this kitty you mentioned.

I've been to Paris several times. Your banner photo is breathtakingly beautiful! What a great blog you have! I really like this unique sculpture. I'm not sure what to call it, but what fun!

I scanned down and saw a photo of Jardin du Palais Royal. We always stay in an apartment right there. I'm going to have fun looking at your posts.

This reminds me of the Pablo Picasso quote “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
I like to think that's what we bloggers do for each other with our photos.

Jack said...

She seems to have her own unique style, doesn't she?

TheChieftess said...

I love the Picasso quote Randy!!! Wonderful thought and love that you applied that thought to Photo blogging!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...
