These were just some weeds on the side of the road near a cemetary we stopped at.  So pretty, I made it my screensaver.

Fran Mittelstet and I had such a good time painting in Tuscany Italy with our students that we are returning in October 2020.  Details will be provided just as soon as we get them.  It looks like most of our original group is going back, so you will want to sign up early!

 I was surprised and pleased what a wonderful experience this was for all of us.  Plenty to see, great shopping and fantastic food and wine.  This is just a small sampling of my memories.


San Fedele  This is the restored monestary that we stayed in.  We were so well taken care of.  Great friends and food.

Our Friends Helen and Dave joined us in Florence for a couple of days before they moved on to France. What an adventure.

The scenery was so beautiful.  My pictures do not do it justice.

. . . and we painted and we partied; visiting 3 winerys!

It was so beautiful, everything was a pretty picture.  Just waiting to be made into paintings!

Every morning we had breakfast on the patio.

. . .and we walked and walked and walked.  Seeing so many things.  People were so nice to us.  Very welcoming.
