Gwendolin Lewis

This is an excerpt of my experience at the 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.

Coming to La Macina in Chianti Toscana has been a fabulous experience.

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.

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 here at La Macina and for including us in the family of La Macina di San Cresci.Thankyou and arrividerci …Until we meet again .
