Escape Artists, Mermaids and Girlimals in Paris!

 In Art Travels, Creativity, Workshops

image image image imageMy first Escape Artist Retreat in Paris has been action packed and rather unbelievable! Even unseasonal precipitation could’nt dampen our spirits. As Dolly Parton said “if you want rainbows, you have to put up with the rain!”. It sure makes you appreciate the sunshine!

I’ll do a blow by blow post later ( when I have a minute next before my second awesome group of Escape Artists arrives the next week!).

But for now I wanted to share the mermaids we have been creating, and more than a few girlimals too!

my Escape Artists each brought their own styles and worked very hard to fill their journals with gorgeous art. I was delighted and so were they!

Artists from above:

Jane Carlisle, Geri McLeod, Renelde Napoli, Susan Elliot.

This is just the tip of the art- berg! We created so much…

    It looks like everyone had a fabulous time. What beautiful art was created. This trip is on my bucket list. Please keep doing these trips Jane, only 5 years until I can do one. Not that I am counting! 🙂
