Monet Phone Wallet/Stand/Ring Review: I Hate How Much I Love This Thing

Cameron Summerson You know those wallets you stick to the back of your phone? How about the rings that also work as kickstands? Well, Monet is both of those things in one. And I hate how much I love it. For the majority of my time as a smartphone user, I’ve been totally opposed to cases. In recent years, I’ve come to accept them as a necessary evil—as phones become more “premium,” they also become more slippery and fragile. So cases are pretty much a must. I also refused to stick any of th...

Best free museums in London

London leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to weather. More often than not, you can expect a little drizzle, sometimes leaving your plans for a cruise along the River Thames, a stroll along the South Bank, or a picnic in Hyde Park thwarted. But the good news is that — thanks to its huge selection of world-class museums, many of which are free for visitors — the UK’s capital isn’t a bad place to spend a rainy day. In our ultimate rainy tour of London’s museums, we’ll have you gawping at...

"Renoir's Garden"

“Monet’s Garden” in Giverny (see my posts here) is certainly more known than “Renoir’s Garden” in Paris. (... and this garden is definitely less famous for its water lilies … despite the top picture.) What is referred to as “Renoir’s Garden” is actually part of the green space which now surrounds the Montmartre Museum and on which I have posted several times, see e.g. here, here, here and here. We can learn that Renoir lived and worked here for a short time around 1876 (two years...

Artist Travels To Scenic Locations Only To Paint The Pattern Of His Own Shirt

Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert offer a hilarious take on classic outdoor painting. In their collaboration, Und im Sommer tu ich malen (“And in the Summer, I do paint”), Schubert photographs in der Beek at various locations famously captured by artists like Cézanne and Monet. However, rather than focusing on the scenic landscape around him, in der Beek is seen... Source

We went inside a virtual simulation of a black hole, and it was a mind-bending experience

Before he died, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen worked on a simulation machine called the Holodome, which turned his passions into virtual experiences. The commercial version of that machine debuted this week at TED 2019 in Vancouver, Canada. The Holodome features three mind-bending simulations: a climb atop Mount Everest, a peek inside paintings by Monet, and a journey into the center of a black hole. Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories. The annual TED conference in Vancouver, Canada,...

Riverside House: A Normandy Guesthouse from an Upstart American Restaurateur

My 8 Favorite Hostels in Medellín in 2019

Posted: 3/19/2019 | March 19th, 2019 There are a lot of hostels in Medellín. As “gringo central” for Colombia, you can’t walk five feet without coming across one, with majority located in El Pablado (Gringoland) and Laureles (up-and-coming Gringoland). In fact, if you look on Hostelworld, you’ll find 93 hostels in this city. That’s a lot of hostels. I spent close to three weeks in Medellín: first for an extended time over the holidays and then again as I made my way from north to south. Like I...

A Monet Inspired Wedding at Eolia Mansion in Connecticut

Today's Monet-inspired wedding in Connecticut planned by EBB & Flow Events is every bit charming as it is romantic. We love how the bride and groom incorporated elements into their wedding that represented their personal passions. So, you'll notice horses for the bride and bicycles for the groom celebrated in subtle ways throughout the day.

Solo Female Travel in Paris — Is it Safe?

Is it safe for a woman to travel alone to Paris? Absolutely. Under most circumstances, with the right preparation and precautions, visiting Paris can be as safe as staying in your hometown. Paris is a place where I’ve been traveling alone for years! I first fell in love with Paris when I was 16 years old and on a school trip, and I’ve returned more than a dozen times since, often solo. It’s a city that I love dearly, a city where I frequently play tour guide for my friends and family. However, ...

Clemenceau's slippers

I made (again) a visit to the Clemenceau Museum. It’s a small museum in the 16tharrondissement, actually the rather modest flat that Clemenceau occupied as from 1896 until his death in 1929. You have the feeling that nothing has changed, that everything is exactly as it was when he lived there. Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929) is one of the most remarkable men in French history. Medical doctor, writer, journalist… but especially politician (Prime Minister during WWI). This is not the place ...

Blue stairs...

When I was in the area, visiting the « Cité Fleurie », see preceding post, I actually wanted to visit another little artist’s haven. Again, I had to wait until a kind person let me in. This place, much smaller, is referred to as the “Cité Verte” and if it still exists some 120 years after its creation, surrounded by modern apartment buildings, it’s thanks to the same artist who saved the “Cité Fleurie”, his name was Henri Cadiou… and once again the intervention by a French President, this ...

We share all the best things to do in Normandy, France, including the best museums and Normandy beaches, what Normandy foods you have to try, where to stay in Normandy, and much more.

Glass Flower Necklaces

Transcendently romantic and botanically realistic, Michael Michaud's glass floral pendants are made from molds cast using real blossoms. Often painted by Monet and Van Gogh, brilliant scarlet poppies may be the world's most popular wildflower. Blue false indigo, Native to the North American prairie, was coveted for its intense shade by Native Americans and European settlers who used it to dye fabric. Both come vividly to life in Michael's detailed designs. Handmade of bronze and glass in Connect...

How Do You Cut Down a Family Tree?

Monet’s Giverny – our inspiration. Don’t laugh. It’s been more than 30 years since we began converting our eight acres of cow pasture into a mini-arboretum and sculpture garden; the Hoosier Giverny. Our operating philosophy was we pretty much had no idea what the hell we were doing. Most of the stuff we planted lived anyway – even prospered. Now I have to cut some of it down. The cutting-down is painful; well beyond the current tidying-up fad authored by Marie Kondo with her “decl...

Monet’s Water Lilies virtual reality

The Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris is taking the typical museum experience to the next level. When visiting the “Water Lilies” rooms — two oblong-shaped galleries with eight panoramic panels of Claude Monet’s famous work — guests can now choose to take a virtual reality journey, and immerse themselves fully in the artist’s world. Called “Claude Monet: The Water Lily Obsession,” the experience will allow guests to “visit” Monet’s Giverny home and garden, which had been the inspiration for much ...

Art

I made a quick stop at the Orangerie the other day. It’s in between exhibits but it is always nice to just sit and look at the waterlilies painted by Monet. The two rooms were specially built for his paintings. Another one. He must have bought paint by the gallon. The corner of one of the paintings showing water lilies.

Improve Your Art By Seeing in Black and White

Improve Your Art By Seeing in Black and White Training your eyes to see values of black and white before painting will help improve your paintings. But, what does seeing in black and white mean?

During my plein air painting workshops, I introduce my students to the Japanese design principles of Notan. (This concept is fresh on my mind, having recently re...
