Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Jeune femme à la voilettevers (1870)

I spent the past week in Paris, celebrating my birthday with family and friends. While there, we visited the Musée d’Orsay; I was wholly unprepared for the way the museum changed me.

I was familiar with many of the famous paintings there, but had never seen them in real life. So when we came upon the Renoir pieces I was suddenly and unexpectedly overwhelmed by their beauty, utterly transported. His paintings are so impossibly beautiful, so full of longing and light and love for his subjects. I came away deeply, deeply inspired, renewed, excited to get back to work and grateful to be alive.
