Dermo1
This was an international medical group, celebrating its expansion. Let’s see, what countries were represented? Egypt, Morocco, the Dermo2Netherlands, Germany, India, Thailand, Guatemala, Turkey , France and the US. A good looking bunch, btw. Add to the mix the fact that they were doctors, lawyers and marketing types and you get interesting conversations and the kind of humor that I thrive on. All right, class, what was the color associated with French royalty before the revolution? See? Someone immediately looked it up.

They flew in and drove in from both coasts and from Texas.  They had been stationed in Germany back in the seventies when they were in their twenties. The deep friendship among these people was apparent and very moving to me.  Some came with spouses and some came solo just to be with their buddies for a few hours. The camaraderie and humor among them inspired me. Thank you, Leanna.

Their husbands are executives in an international company and so they move around a bit. They talk about London, Rome or Rio as if these were neighboring suburbs.  Everybody speaks a handful of languages—fluently.  I drew thirteen of these cosmopolitan women, who came from India, Australia, Denmark, Germany, France, Argentina, Belgium, Britain and the Faroe Islands.  I practiced a little French and German on them and asked to hear some Faroese, which sounds a lot like Swedish.    Art, culture, food…pretty good company, I must say.  They were celebrating the birthday of a member, the founder of this ex-pat club.  I drew them all in an hour-and-a-half and then was invited to enjoy some of their fabulous pot-luck.  Thank you, Jackie.  Happy Birthday, Eva!
