|The French Countryside|
12 x 16 Watercolor
by Pat Fiorello
You may have noticed my blog has been quiet for the past 2 weeks. I was away in France teaching a painting workshop at La Bonne Etoille in the countryside, about an hour outside of Paris. We stayed in a charming farmhouse of our hosts Kippy and Jerome. They did a wonderful job providing us with an authentic French experience and showing us some of the highlights of their region. We all had fun painting, soaking in the french scenery and enjoying lots of good food and wine. One of the things I love about these trips is getting lots of new photos for painting inspiration which keep the trip memories alive for a long time. I'm excited to get started on some more french scenes when I'm back in the studio tomorrow. I'll be sharing more paintings, so stay tuned.

My next painting trip is Tuscany this October. There's still room available if you'd like to join in the fun. For more info click on Paint Tuscany or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
