"What a well organized trip and outstanding workshop. We have became accustomed to that by now! Thank you for the freedom and excellent tuition."

"Thank you Kate for your wonderful organization of our well being for the entire plein air painting holiday. The hotel was absolutely marvelous and the food every night couldn’t have been better.  Thank you Tom for your plein air painting workshop which was instructional and enjoyable. We don’t have opportunity to do that in HK and certainly gained much from your help."
