Currently, I am playing with extremely thick oil paint, creating three-dimensional canvases that flow with light, energy and color. From capturing the gorgeous colors of autumn to the textures of birch and aspen trunks, to the massive sunflower fields in Provence and Tuscany, to the rocky, mountainous terrain of the Southwest, I can’t wait to share these new paintings with you!
Our European Art Treks have been so successful that this year we are bringing back our Paris, Tuscany, and Cinque Terre/ Lake Como workshops, in addition to adding a new trip to Provence, France. We’re excited that our Provence trip sold out before we ever posted it from previous Art Trek participants! We are looking forward to sharing our love of the countryside, painting and photographing lavender and sunflower fields, visiting picturesque hill towns, following in Van Gogh’s footsteps and sampling some great food and wines with everyone.
We’re also planning another trip back to Provence in June/July of 2015, so if you are interested in joining us, please let us know so that we can reserve a spot for you. Additional trips for 2015 include Venice in February for Carnivalé, Greece in May and brand new on the agenda, the French Riviera in June.
Coming up this October, closer to home, we will be taking a group of painters and photographers with us to New Orleans to capture the unique energy of the French Quarter – from Jackson Square to quaint Creole cottages near Frenchman Street to colonial mansions in the Garden district to live oaks dripping with moss and tropical foliage, all while taking in live jazz and delicious Creole cuisine. This is an Art Trek not to be missed! If you’d like to come along, please let me know.
