6 X 6 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
S O L D
This subject is a warm-up for a workshop I am taking in Italy in June. For a year now I’ve been talking about Greg LaRock’s week-long plein air painting workshop in Tuscany. My sweet husband volunteered to stay at home with the kids and told me that I should go this year. While, I am torn about leaving the baby (they change so much in a week), one of the things I’ve learned during this awful recession is to seize an opportunity like this when it comes along because it might not come around again.
So, I leave the first week in June. We are staying in a renovated monastery in the Chianti region in Tuscany. There are only 2 other artists going along which means lots of feedback from Greg. He tells us that because our group is so small we can go anywhere we want to paint. He has several exciting locations planned and I hope the weather is good. Honestly, I don’t have the words to express how much I am looking forward to this trip!
