Here’s a nice article about our workshop! We did get a lot of positive feedback on our Tuscan Workshop… We’re already planning for next year and will add Provence, France to the schedule as well.
Ok, here’s a link to Joel’s new release: “Toscana I.”
It’s part of a new series of very limited editions he’s doing… so he won’t be printing very many of them!
Come see us (and his new image on canvas) at Wheeler Park in Flagstaff this Memorial Day Weekend, May 23-25th.
Show hours are: 9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday, 9am-4pm Monday.
I’ve had several people suggest that I keep the blog going… so I’m going to give it a try! I’ll try to make an update every week or so with information regarding our upcoming shows, workshops, and Joel’s new releases.
Here’s a photo we took in Le Marche. Joel also shot some really cool video of the same poppy field in the wind.
I will probably put up Joel’s new release when he chooses it as well!
We’re sitting in the Phoenix airport waiting for our flight back to Flagstaff (almost home!) and I thought I’d post some more photos from the trip… one I like, and one is just for fun. If you look in the foreground of the first one- there’s a crepe maker, usually about 12″+ across- so those Nutella jars are about gallon size!!
We’ll be doing a show in Flagstaff Memorial Day Weekend and hopefully Joel will have time to print something new… We’ll also be updating the website with some new info on upcoming workshops… lots to come!
Well, we have now fallen in love with Le Marche… it is more mountainous than Tuscany and less touristed so we have had several villages completely to ourselves! They tell us the high season has not yet begun and that it does get busy in the summer, but we like it now! The weather has been wonderful and the people very warm and friendly.
Today we bought fresh pasta and vegetables at the market that I’ll make for dinner, mmmm….. I’ll put a scenic of Le Marche in the next post
We were sad to see everyone leave, but the workshop was wonderful! I think we enjoyed it as much as our participants did. Our last day, we visited a beautiful walled medieval village with ancient wine cellars and a local organic farm where they make amazing sheep cheese, among other wonderful things. We had what was very nearly my favorite meal of the trip at the farm, which is saying a lot. And of course the adorable great pyrenee puppy- nearly 5 weeks old- won all our hearts! I think everyone was impressed by their own photographs at our “Greatest Hits” slide show.
Joel and I are now in Le Marche and hope to find some treasures to photograph in the area. We are going to a town celebration dinner tonight, which should be a lot of fun… and tasty of course.
