Just the beginning......

Well hello everyone!  Ça va?  Welcome to my blog about all things Parisian.

I'm so happy that  2012 is about to it's the beginning of a wonderful adventure for Pierre (mon mari) and moi.

Everything is going into storage....and we're off to Paris (as they say in French....allons-y å Paris!)

Oui!  Magnifique Paris where we'll be ensconced for the next year or two doing all manner of gorgeous workshops, photography, gallery visits, shopping at the local marchés, attempting to speak French, taking side trips to some of Europe's most interesting cities and, of course, quaffing French champagne and sampling la cuisine extraordinaire. Pardon mon français...c'est si mauvais....but that will change soon.
The will to do, the soul to dare.

The will to do, the soul to dare - it's a favourite saying that I've used on a new multimedia work.  

I've used beautiful vintage Italian and French postcards overwhich I've layered my collagraphic work.

The series is called "Where there's a will, there's a way."   Loved doing these small works and will continue to develop the concept in Paris where I'll be taking art workshops with wonderful teachers.....lots more about what I'll be learning soon.
Fantastique - there's nothing like a black and white combination!
And little noir et blanc numbers below from moi.
Violå.   My very first post!

I hope you enjoy these posts as I share this wonderful experience. Paris oozes inspiration....and I can't wait to be enveloped by all that city has to offer.  Allons-y å Paris.
