Dear Readers, this week we have a guest writer who has graciously offered to write my blog so I can go to bed early this evening. And so, without further ado, here she is:

Painting here is like heaven on earth. All your dreams seem possible, especially you’re painting dreams!! The paint flows along with the wine…you seem to paint without effort. I’ve left my inhibitions at home along with all my responsibilities.

After seeing all the wonderful paintings in the museum in Paris and Giverney, I decided I’ve been too critical of my painting efforts. I’ve resolved to be kinder to myself and approve of loosening up my painting techniques…a lot. That’s easier said than done but I’m trying. Kathie is teaching us skills to make it easier for us to be loose women and one man. We are learning lots of negative painting techniques which make our paintings flow and grow so much faster and easier.

Did I mention the food???? Maybe the wonderful food is fueling our painting frenzy!!!! It is healthy but tastes way too good to be called healthy. The desserts call your name in a very seductive way! The great thing about it is I don’t feel guilty about eating dessert because I’m walking miles and miles…uphill and down!!!

Le Vieux Couvent is like no place else in the world!!! Each room has its own story and decor. We have all bonded with our bed chambers and love them. I am dreaming away each night under a beautiful pink canopy. How could these dreams not be special??? I look out my windows and see the medieval church, which rules our day with its lovely bells.

Our days are filled with wine, roses, and anemones!!! The grounds of Le Vieux are even more spectacular than our rooms!!! There are so many fantastic trails through the lovely mazes of flowers. You can really take time to smell the roses!!!

In short I feel like I’m Cinderella!!!! But more about that later…

IT WAS AT THIS MOMENT WE LOST OUR GUEST BLOG WRITER. THE DINNER BELL RANG AND SHE WAS OFF TO MEET EVERYONE FOR A WONDERFUL PART OF THE DAY…DINNER.

Thank you, guest writer for your wonderful post, and such nice words!

And thank you, readers!
Kathie
