I just spent the two most glorious weeks ever, in France. I joined the ‘Monet Immersion’ artist’s retreat planned by the Colorado based company, ‘My Art Trip‘. It was a great choice. Owner Sue Ann Humm, and Instructor Susan Rubin were great hosts. Friendly and knowledgeable, these ladies had no end of interesting tours and day trips we could take, and offered us lots of flexibility for free time to paint also. I was traveling solo, and always felt relaxed, happy and safe. The other artists on the tour were a joy to meet and paint with; I’ll be keeping in touch with many of them.
We arrived and painted in Paris for three days, then for seven days in the little town of Giverny. Perhaps you haven’t heard of this town – many folks I told about my trip didn’t, either. So why did I choose it? Because it is the home of Claude Monet’s famous gardens. I could talk for days about all the beautiful colour, architecture, food, and new friends I met on my trip. However I’d prefer to share a few of the plein air paintings I created along the way – I think they say it better than I ever could.
Thanks for stopping by and viewing my work.
