Grand Canal, Venice
Claude Monet
Oil on canvas, 36" x 29", 1908
Boston Museum of Fine Arts

And then realized when I got home from the museum that Monet and I had, like so many artists, enjoyed the same view. I'd taken this photo May 29, 2014, on my trip to Venice, which was a gift from my son, a wonderful trip with the whole family including my grandboys.
