After The Retreat
The greatest impact were the friendships made and gallery shows that resulted from the trip. I have a much larger library of images to choose from that are authentic. It also taught me how to travel as an artist….what to bring, what not to bring. It takes you out of what you know and lets you see with fresh eyes. It’s a terrific opportunity and one I look forward to doing again.
We feel more a part of a greater appreciation of ART.
The experience definitely inspired me as an artist and has given me a lot of new painting material for the studio!
A chance to travel and paint with other artists just adds richness to your life. You are forever changed by all the experiences and all that you’ve looked at. It’s fabulous on your resume and informs all the work that follows.
I will benefit for the rest of my life from the friendships that evolved from our time traveling. Another benefit of traveling with Julie was her “can do” attitude, solving any potential hitches and making sure each and everyone of the artists had the best possible experience. The most surprising benefit was the addition of painting in France to my resume and how collectors are pleased.
