It’s been a busy 2 weeks here. I met my co-teachers Julie Eakes and Meisha Barbee (for our La Cascade workshop) in Barcelona a few days before our workshop started. We had a wonderful time- good AirBnb, walked our feet off, ate one of the best American classic cheeseburgers I have had (I know, I know, sacrilegious in this great tapas city) and shared many laughs. Highlights were the great Gaudi sites: la Sagrada, Parc Guell, Casa Pedrada, and we also enjoyed the Gothic quarter, the indoor market and the port area at the end of Las Ramblas.(I loved the mimes there!)
And two new finds for me: Museu del Disseny– a new museum combining the former museums of decorative art, design, fashion and textiles. And the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya- the national art museum of Catalonia-. Both are wonderful and highly recommended.
Then we jumped in the car and headed back to France and La Cascade. Our wonderful group of adventuresome ladies and gents arrived safely at Toulouse airport and we began our week. We had 7 inspiring studio sessions, a fun Saturday market in Revel, flea market treasures on Sunday, a side trip to Albi, lovely late afternoon drinks at our village cafe and let’s not forget our choir in the church!
We want to thank all of you for all the laughter and joy and inspiring art and your spirit of adventure and embracing whatever came our way! Come back again! Love to Julie, Meisha, Liz, Annie, Carl, Neala, Sandy, Laura, Carolyn, Patti, Tim, Michele, and our two extra husbands Denis and David.
