Painting My World. It is the name of my blog but it is also a dream come true. I have always wanted to travel. From the time I took a job in high school so I could go to France with my French class I was hooked. The travel bug had bitten and there was no turning back.

Painting and teaching has helped me make my dreams of traveling the world a reality. This year it was France, Sweden and Finland and next year it will be Croatia! I am excited to announce that I will be teaching a 7 day workshop with Aria Workshops in Istria, Croatia. 
Here is an excerpt from the website:

"Join us for a painting and sketching holiday on the greenest part of the Adriatic sea. Enjoy delicious Mediteranean cuisine, delightful wines and the camaraderie of fellow artists. The workshops are based in Poreč, a small picturesque resort town in Istria. You will be staying in the Hotel Villa Gloria, a family owned and operated hotel with exceptional service. There will be painting excursions to the Istrian hill cities, to Pula, the city with the Roman amphitheater, and to the Rovinj where every street and stone calls to be painted.There will also be an optional one day excursion to Venice, Italy"




I've seen the photos and I am excited by the painting possibilities of this beautiful part of the world. This trip is an opportunity to learn and grow as an artist as well as expand your horizons and make new friends.

The dates of the workshop are July 2 - 9, 2016. Details as follows:
