Thank you Garrett Speirs; @Plein Air Tuscany, for an amazing eight days of painting in Tuscany. We beginners had a blast painting away in so many magical spots you surprised us with twice daily. Immersing ourselves each day, you literally and figuratively pushed us up and down many fascinating, unexpected and frustrating paths. At the end of the day, returning to our Tuscan Villa, the staff’s warm greetings and unforgettable Italian cuisine were superb!
Thank you fellow workshop painters, old friends and new friends, for the fond memories! Seeing what you all could do was an inspiration and a source of energy!
Thank you Tim Mosby, for the extraordinary charcuterie lunch platters paired with wine. This sport of painting could not go on without you!
An extra bonus for me was that I did not confuse my wine cup with the turpentine cup (just a couple of close calls) and my ear lobe is in tack.
