The New Year arrived here with a blast. Six degrees and two feet of snow.

Houses at Auvers, 1890
Bequest of John T. Spaulding
The MFA came up with a brilliant concept sure to banish the snow blues, if only for 10 minutes or so. Starting Monday, over the next four weeks, the public is invited to vote for our most-loved Impressionist works.
View of the Siene at Herblay, 1889
The paintings with the most votes will be in a special exhibition "Boston Loves Impressionism". Opening Valentine's Day and running through May 26th, this is looking good for a Mother's Day venue.
Each week has a theme. The Van Gogh and Segnac are just two of Week One's group of 17 snow-free, watery themed masterpieces. Landscapes are up for Week Two and people are slated for Week Three. The final round is January 27-29.
Share the Love and cast your vote.
Hope your weekend is snug and warm.
Wishing you much joy, happiness and prosperity for 2014!
