Painting in Tuscany


New Piece 1 in the studio, 48 x 38 oil on canvas


I have exciting news!! I have been invited to teach a painting workshop in Tuscany, Italy. Doesn't that sound amazing?

I was thinking the end of June 2011 (this June!!26-3) would be a great time to escape to an Italian Villa. There is a pool and air-conditioning. The other time available is the end of September(24-Oct 1)

This workshop will include a variety of breathtaking locations chosen to inspire our creative work. Using mixed media ( pastels, oil pastels, oil sticks and paint ) we will be informed by the landscape. Imagine working with the textures, tones, colors and the clarity of light that is so much a part of Tuscany's natural beauty.


We will also visit some museums, art galleries and medieval hill top towns . Excursions will include a visit to the nearby thermal springs, which have been reputed since Roman times to have healing properties. We will often be traveling through the fabulous countryside of the Val d'Orcia, with its classic Tuscan views. Our trips will include two beautiful hill towns - Pienza, with its famed local Pecorino cheeses; and also Montepulciano, known for its wonderful wines. Here we will have the opportunity to visit La Cantina Redi, one of the oldest wineries in Tuscany.

Accommodations, transfers, all meals, wine and several excursions are included for only $2,300 for the week. The air travel is up to you.

I am limited to 10 people and one seat is already taken for June.

Artist or not: there will be plenty to do!

Fun is high up on that list.

Wow, your work is really inspiring. I hope that I can eventually leave the representational behind to arrive at something as aesthetic and moving as your work.
