The mighty Louvre

Le Grand Louvre is the world's largest museum.  
I read that it might take 9 months just to glance at every piece of art. I visited twice this past month, the first time with a tour group and the second time by myself with the luxury of standing in front of anything I pleased for as long as I wanted.  If I ever get another day like that, there is so much more I could have seen.
 I stopped in the gallery with the Venus de Milo and just couldn't leave. I drew her again and again. 
Life drawing from a perfectly still model! Although the crowds of people continually standing  in front of me snapping photos  blocked my view.
