In 2014 we spent a week on the Canal du Midi. Unlike this painting the banks are lined with beautiful plane trees. Sadly these trees have been hit by a fungus and many infected trees have been removed. This was one of the areas where the trees are gone. I hope to follow this painting with one of the bridges where plane trees still line the canal.
This past summer I was fortunate to attend a workshop with Colley Whisson at the Landgrove Inn in Landgrove, VT. Colley is an Australian artist
