have begun to travel and paint more in the last few years.
I was in Italy on a solo painting tour for 10 weeks. I had
to Italy before so I traveled to many regions to experience
it all. It was
during a particular rainy fall and there was massive flooding
regions. The Cinque Terre, a region I wanted to visit, was
sible because many of the roads were washed out. It was
trip anyway with all the marvelous food and wine. I will
returning again in 2003.
I returned to Europe, and visited Ireland and France for
first time. I spent a month in each country. I had a painting
in a show
in Ireland and taught in conjunction with that. I toured
whole island, mainly staying close to the coast. The people
wonderful and warm, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed
the food, as I had not associated Ireland with great food.
It was also
a nice surprise to see a lot of good art in even the smallest
France I made a circuit of many regions,and as I really
I tasted all the food from the different regions with great
finding delicious food in every town. I found the French
even though my french was not as fluent as it could have
will be exploring France again
