Follow Jerie Artz as she leads a painting expedition through France this May. “I am taking 9 friends from the Gateway East Artist Guild to France to paint May 15 – 31. I just created a blog for the trip. It might be of interest to make available to the membership. We are going to stay in a rural part of France, near Limoges for over a week, in the guest home of a dear friend of mine. Then we’ll spend a week in Paris, including a day trip to Monet’s house and gardens at Giverny.
I mainly created the blog site for the people going and our families, but there might be those in the membership that would like to check it out. “
