Cortona Vista, 12 x 9
This is one of many studies I started during our amazing trip to Tuscany 2 weeks ago. My fellow painters were a congenial and delightful group - we just had so much fun! Below is a shot of Kathy Bowman and Georgia McAuley setting up their easels at this spot on our last, rather overcast day.
Here is a shot of the whole group - our first night at the Villa di Piazzano, in the bar, of course, before dinner!
Left to right, back row: Vickie Stallings, Georgia McAuley, Kathy Bowman, Nancy Armstrong
Then, in front: Me, Wendy Jackson, and Jean Dortch -- all good painters and great traveling friends.
Below are a few shots of the girls painting at the Villa, and some of their work. I have so far only received images from 2 people, but you'll see a shot of their paintings on the grass from the first day.
Wendy Jackson, a study in Focus!
Georgia McAuley, modeling her black scrubs!
First morning's efforts - is that Tuscany or what?
Nancy Armstrong, love the hat!
Jean Dortch, the style setter, looking so arty with her EasyL Box!
Vicki Stallings, our shopping leader: "Don't Leave Me!"
Kathy Bowman, the Chef and Foodie!
We are off to Alaska to see the kids on Thursday, but I shall post again prior to departure, with some new work and some thoughts, and of course, some Italian paintings by the girls. Buona notte...
