CROATIA Art Workshop 2017

In May 2017 I took a group of artists to CROATIA to paint.
It was beyond AMAZING! It was everything I’d hoped for, and more.
Here’s an above town shot of the picturesque double peninsulas of Cavtat.

    It looked like an amazing trip. And of course a wonderful land filled with lovely people with warmth and top knotch hospitality! I look forward to all the art postings from the travelers that were there!
    We visit Croatia in the Fall this year, and can’t wait.

    Robin, when will you be in Croatia? We arrive in Split by ferry from Ancona Italy on Oct 3 and leave for Dubrovnik on Oct 5-8. Will our paths cross? The photos on this sight make me very excited to be there. Looks like great inspiration for paintings. Rene, I can see why you chose this spot for a workshop.
