So, I’ve finally got around to uploading some of the best of the snaps from my recent painting holiday in July in Auribeau. Yet again it was a great trip with everyone enjoying the beautiful weather and great food making new friends and painting out of doors for the very first time. As I sit here looking at the bucket of water in our back garden with it’s crisp coating of ice at the beginning of 2009 it all seems a long way away. A lot of the people who came on the two 2008 trips have expressed an interest in coming back which is great but can I persuade anybody new to come along given that the fall of the pound relative to the Euro would make everything 50% more expensive this year compared to last? Perhaps these photos will help to convince some of you…..
