I’m gonna have duckies


I used the light on my iPhone to light up the duck eggs.  Sure enough there is something in all four that is forming.  They’re about 7 – 10 days developed according to what I can find on Google.  It would be cool if I could get a pic of one of them. Knock on wood and say a prayer that they hatch in a couple weeks.  Do I find a YouTube of ducks quacking and play it over and over again for them so that they know they are ducks?

I have to start thinking about building a brooder now.

Art Sunday #176: Berthe Morisot – Grain Field


Berthe_Morisot_005

Berthe Marie Pauline Morisot (French: [mɔʁizo]; January 14, 1841 – March 2, 1895) was a painter and a member of the circle of painters in Paris who became known as the Impressionists. She was described by Gustave Geffroy in 1894 as one of “les trois grandes dames” of Impressionism alongside Marie Bracquemond and Mary Cassatt.

In 1864, she exhibited for the first time in the highly esteemed Salon de Paris. Sponsored by the government, and judged by Academicians, the Salon was the official, annual exhibition of the Académie des beaux-arts in Paris. Her work was selected for exhibition in six subsequent Salons until, in 1874, she joined the “rejected” Impressionists in the first of their own exhibitions, which included Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Alfred Sisley. It was held at the studio of the photographer Nadar.

She was married to Eugène Manet, the brother of her friend and colleague Édouard Manet.
