Sapin de Noël took a ribbon at the Watercolor Art Society-Houston and sold to a loving home. Yay!

(correction! This was Marc Chagall’s home!) Imagine our surprise in October to learn the house next door to our beautiful hotel was once a residence of Marc Chagall. Inside, Giacommetti painted a mural for him which, we were told, remains.
A couple weeks ago our group traveled to the base of Mont Sainte-Victoire, stood in the footsteps of Cezanne and sketched. The following day I tried something I’d never done with a class before– We painted these collaborative paintings (above), which turned out to be one of my favorite trip experiences. The small house you see in the background of the photo, below, was where Matisse lived in St. Paul de Vence.
