Still Life with Bottle, Bread, and Wine …

In honor of Claude Monet, the great impressionist painter who was born on this day back in 1840, we here at Monte Bello have staged a recreation of one of the master’s great works, a piece entitled “Still Life with Bottle, Bread and Wine.” It’s a beautiful painting, and evocative to the point that, every time I view it, I am immediately and desperately desirous of bread, cheese, and wine; a culinary holy trinity if ever there was one. I am hungry, I am thirsty, and I am in awe.

Our recreation is a fairly poor one, that I’ll ready concede. But it’s the spirit that counts! And the meal to follow, of course. Yes, we did eat the props. Anyhow, our recreation:

And for your viewing pleasure, the original:
