Art with Liz

Today we learned to look at the Tuscan countryside with different eyes. We are having art lessons! Our teacher is a woman with the patience of a saint, and the sense of humor to keep us laughing. Elizabeth Cochrane is a friend of Gail's, and a fabulous artist.

Liz is a artist who lives in Montisi. She has been painting Tuscan landscapes for more than 15 years~ both water colors and oils. Several people went home with one of her paintings!
I only went home with a water color 'corrected by Liz'. It is still good enough to frame. I'll show the finished product later. Poppies and olive trees... A memory of our week in Tuscany!

Ciao y'all,

What a wonderful idea, taking a painting class -- and what a great souvenir of Tuscany!

I'm not a very good cook but I've taken a few cooking classes when I've visited Italy and I'm amazed at what I've learned and what great memories the class has given me!
