Thank you so much for such a spiritual journey through art and the wonderful companionship of us 5 ladies. Will never forget this week. Xxx to you all.
I love art, but have been mainly on the collecting side. Thoroughly enjoyed the painting experience. This was a lovely week spent with other artists and I will treasure the memories.
What a fantastic art experience. I was a bit apprehensive to start with as I have not painted for years and years, but this was one of the most fantastic weeks ever and I will never forget it! I have found myself again as an artist and will never stop painting now. Wietzie you are a star!
Loved ever minute of every day that I spent painting during this week! Also the lunches were wonderful, with all of us connecting on so many levels. Can highly recommend this art retreat!
The trip was an artistic journey, so well coordinated all the artists had to do was create. It was a trip of a lifetime for us, to be able to paint together as husband and wife in the wonderful French countryside. From painting in the vineyards to the warm welcome of Bastide La Belle's lights in the evening after a day of painting. Wietzie made every day a fun and interactive experience, by listening to each person and magically knowing how to make every artist comfortable so they can create to their full potential and beyond. We look forward to the day when we can travel back again and paint each day dawn till dark.

Thank you for making this experience a memorable testimony to our artistic growth. What better way to spend time during the fall painting in France, the heart of Impressionism.

The most memorable were dinners around the table at the end of a great day of painting. Wietzie made the whole thing so easy and fun, and was so accommodating and gracious. Not to mention the accommodation at Bastide La Belle- like a luxury resort and so beautiful!
