Off to Tuscany

I have exciting news!! 
I am leaving on Saturday for Tuscany  with a group of students for a week long workshop. 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.   Cortona, Sienna, Montepulciano,  Pienza and Assisi are on the list. I hope to be able to post some pictures while I am there.( Even as I write this I can't believe  I am going.)

Ciao for now

Buono viaggio! (or something like that - my memory fades) :-) Look forward to hearing, and seeing, the journey unfold. Safe travels!

I am soooo jealous. Italy is beautiful, I have such fond memories of travelling there.

Lisa Have a great time.
As my family originally come from that wonderful part of the world I know there are plenty of sources to work from.
Let me know how it went when you get back

Loved Italy last year, so think Tuscany would be amazing to visit. Those sunny yellows are gorgeous.
