This painting was painted in my sketchbook..It's a view of the Val D'Orcia, which I think is the most beautiful section of Tuscany. It's only about 10 minutes away from the little hilltop village of Montisi, where we stay in a villa and have painting lessons daily. We also go out and visit lots of neighboring villages, markets, towns and museums as well as learn to cook from our Italian chef and eat delicious meals and sample local wines.
Next year, May 4-11, 2013, I would love it if you wanted to come along with me to Tuscany and attend my workshop and stay with me at the villa. The tour includes lots of free time to stroll through the village, relax, have a coffee or gelato or take a nap. The cost is $2,550.00 for a shared room and single rooms will be available for an extra fee. Non-painters, spouses and friends are always welcome to attend. The tour price includes all meals except 2 that we eat in local restaurants, all art instruction, tours in mini vans with local drivers, escorted travel to the villa from Florence and cocktail/snack hour. Reserve your spot as soon as you decide with a deposit. Learn more about the trip at www.barbararothart.com or email me for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
