Untours Cafe

In the months since our 2008 Untours in Leiden, Holland and the tiny Alsatian village of Beblenheim, I have been sketching along the California central coast near our home in Morro Bay. Just up the coast highway is Cambria, where I go out with the "Wednesday Irregulars," a great group of artists who paint in the "plein air" tradition. This is a fancy way of saying that we paint outdoors, beginning and completing our work in a couple of hours -- then gathering for the world's least threatening critique over a bag lunch. Mostly, I paint land and sea scapes in oils, often working very large (as big as 4 feet square). My work may be seen at this website: http://homepage.mac.com/boby1/PhotoAlbum1.html

We will travel in Italy in the fall. I'll come back with an armload of new sketches! I hope you enjoy looking at my drawings a bit as much as I have enjoyed doing them. Avanti!

Hi Bob,
We will be in Rome on September 15 and Florence September 23 on an Untours. When will you be in Italy? We were at Morro Bay May 2008 and thought it was beautiful.

Thanks for the note, Deborah and Donald ... We'll go first to the Dolomites (spectacular Italian alps just across from Austria) for a few days in late August. Then down to the area near Montalcino in Tuscany, but not on Untour this time. I'm learning Italian, which makes traveling in Italy so much more enjoyable. Cheers, Biob

We haven't heard from you for awhile. Are you still doing those beautiful watercolor sketches? Are you still traveling? Mary Ann Miller
