What an incredible trip!
It was packed full of exciting landscapes to paint.
Everyday was a new experience.
Even the daily loading up of the horses created delightful subject matter.

From Her Balcony

Susan often takes artists to France to study the light and paint the villages.
This painting was produced back home in the studio from photos taken
in Vence, Provence, France.

This kind lady invited us into her home to meet her cat.
