In the book, watercolor lessons on tiny postcards show how easy it is to paint while traveling.

“Compact materials fit in my satchel, enabled me to paint on park benches in Paris, cafes in Provence, and beaches on the Emerald Coast while picnicking with my husband!”

The Painting Lesson BooksA vision I had on my first day in France of the ancient structures cascading from the mountain into fertile lavender fields captivated me. In the book, you will see the series of Cascading Dreams paintings.

You will also see examples of how painted en plein air in France, in watercolor, oils, charcoals. And how I interpreted paintings and dreams to understand their meaning.

I have included the palette colors I took with me, my easels and equipment, and how to travel with art materials. You can purchase it on Amazon.
