One of my favorite piano pieces of all time is "Clair de lune" by Claude Debussy. The name means 'moonlight' in the French language and a part of Debussy's Suite Bergamesque. Anyone who cannot envision the moon and its light, just by listening to this piece, is rare.
The theme from the Three Muses for this week is "Moonstruck". That's how I feel everytime I play or hear this beautiful composition.

In the upper left corner is Debussy.

"Clair de Lune"

Here is a lovely rendition of it for you - with moon photos!


  1. Love this one!! Brilliant composition and a gorgeous collage!!


  2. Gorgeous piece Nancy. Great take on the theme.

  3. Nancy, I agree wholeheartedly with you that "Clair de Lune" is one of the most beautifully evocative pieces of music ever written and now, of course, I have it running through my mind - especially those first three notes. Your collage is thoughtful and creative - and so beautiful. Your moon is gorgeous.
    The number, variety and quality of takes on one theme are simply amazing in our challenge. What a marvellous collection of artists we have and how much we appreciate the work of every single person. Nancy, yours is SPECIAL.

  4. Gorgeous piece! A wonderful collage, and an inspired take on the theme as well. Bravo!
