Hi Rob,

Patrick from Toscana/Americana sent me the link to your blog. I taught watercolor painting for Patrick in Cortona last year and my students and I loved our trip. We are going back in 2010, September! This year I am teaching watercolor for Patrick in Santorini Greece. You will love Cortona, and Patrick and Angela are the best! And yes, if anyone is wondering you definately get your money's worth on a Toscana/Americana trip!

Your paintings are fabulous!

I need to learn to use the mapping thing you are doing on your blog, cool!
