Hotel on Korcula Island, Croatia

In September 2010, while painting on Korcula Island in Croatia, we visited many villages along the coast.  All were truly beautiful, clean and friendly!  Here is one of  the hotels I stopped in from of and sketched, later to finish in the studio 

Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy

In September 2018,  while painting on Lake Como,  we visited many villages along the coast.  All were truly beautiful, clean and friendly!  This street is in Bellagio, painted from the top of the street looking down.  I've seen this same location before and was so excited to finally be able to see it for myself.  This is a large version of the one I sketched from a photo I took there.

The River, Palm Springs, Calif.

  “This painting was of part of the "The River", along Hwy. 111 from Palm Springs to Palm Dessert in S. California. A great place to have, a coffee, or see a show.

Here I am in Dubrovnik in Croatia, in the region of Dalmatia.  It is a UNESCO world Heritage Site  This is a walled city besieged by the Serb and Montenegrin soldiers for several months.  Although significant damage was done, restoration works and repairs later in the 1990 and 2000's, Dubrovnik re-emerged as one of the leading destinations in the Mediterranean.  Fortunately Korcula Island,  located about 12 miles off shore, was not affected.  Harpist entertaining us.

Near Malaga, Spain, is "La Finca Del Nino", an art retreat on an active 10 acre mango farm.  During our stay there, we travelled to several locations to paint en plein air.  We also had a few occasions to watch Spanish dancers.  Fascinating!

The front gate, which I painted above is most welcoming.  Met some painters there that I had painted with before.  Fun meeting old friends and new ones.



Cadaquez, Spain

Salvador Dali's home

Dali's 'rock' masterpiece


Dali's home

.now a museum

The man

and moi!

While on a painting trip to Roses and Girona in

Spain, we had the opportunity to visit Cadaquez,  

home of Salvador Dali.  Quite an eccentric!  His home, now a museum, is quite fascinating.

Thomas Schaller was the artist who was instructing and demonstrating in this workshop.  We stayed in a seaside hotel in Roses... one of the places I would love to return to!
