My first France Painting Excursion is now complete! We had rainy weather, unusual for the S.W. of France at that time of year. Everyone absolutely loved our hosts Ray and Lynne Johnstone. The sights and the restaurants they selected for us as well as their hospitality and art expertise was top notch.  Thanks Lynne and Ray for everything! I hope to be back with another group in the future!

Here are a few photos of our trip. If you would like to be added to my email list to be notified about any future painting adventures please contact me via my site.

There was one other lady joining us from Saskatoon, not pictured here.

We had too much good French food, but we walked a lot to make up for it.

We enjoyed visits to many historical sites including this monastery at Le Romieu where pilgrims walking the Way of Saint James have stopped for 1000`s of years in search of accommodations along their 2 month journey.

  1. Only 56 days left before we leave for France! Painters and non-painters are welcome! For more info or to get location details for our last pre-trip social on April 26th, 2013 email artist@nikkisportraits.com or call 1-877-335-7655 toll-free.

  2. The Hotel Muguet tells me there is now only room for 1 more to join us on this painting excursion. If you are at all considering it don’t wait to long to call. I just signed up another student yesterday! For more info email artist@nikkisportraits.com

  3. It is now just 14 days until my first painting tour groups leaves for France. I hope you will check back in as I will be posting photos and maybe even videos (I am trying to get a Youtube chanel up and running) of our fun loving band of artists and our hosts at the Mill in SW France. In total there will be 7 of us going, not bad for my first attempt at organizing a trip like this. You can also follow our updates at http:www.facebook.com/PaintFrance .

    As planning for this trip now comes to a close after 2 years of planning,I find myself wondering where I may go next. If you have any suggestions,I would love to hear where you might be interested in traveling to paint.
