Imaginary Trip to Paris - Moulin Rouge

Imaginary Trip to Paris - Moulin Rouge
Originally uploaded by Cheryl Gebhart

"Originally little more than a high-class brothel, it became fashionable to see the spectacular cabarets, which have always included the can-can. The dance became less crude, but is still a little risque and somewhat provocative. The dancers have so much energy!"

And no, I'm not really in Paris, even though I'd love to be. I'm on an imaginary trip with Laure Ferlita.

Love this, Cheryl! It turned out so well!

Beautiful, Cheryl. I love the rich color of the windmill and the warmth of the light. I am going to take the Paris class one day, because the paintings are all so interesting.

I don't know how you are keeping up with two of these classes. I enjoyed looking thru your Paris sketches. They are very nice.
I do have a favor, I have tired unsuccessfully to contact Laure Ferlita. I apparently receive messages in a different kind of text than what she uses and my computer will not communicate with hers when I hit the "link" on her website and blog. Could you possibly send me her e-mail and I might try it that way.
Thanks I will be anxious to see what your next installment is going to be. I enjoyed looking at your sketches and watercolor work you did on your "French" trip. What fun!!
