Artist residence in Italy at La Macina di San Cresci 2019
February 10, 2020
This is an excerpt of my experience at La Macina the artists residency .
I have been totally absorbed in the countryside here in San Cresci and the surrounding villages of Greve and Montefioralle.The beautiful light that changes in the early morning with the hour to produce many magical moments.The rolling hills, the delicious food the wonderful friendly people,the history, it is so encompassing.
I could just continue to produce paintings every day, it is so inspiring. I would like to return and paint more en plain air in the Chianti Region.
Coming to La Macina in Chianti Toscana has been a fabulous experience.
San Cresci in Chianti and La Macina has found a place in our hearts with so many new experiences and opportunities to be creative we must return one day. Our hosts Mimma and Duccio, are dedicated to us having a wonderful experience and I would like to thank them sincerely for everything they offer and for including us in the family of La Macina di San Cresci. Thankyou and arrividerci …Until we meet again .
