Last weekend Caroline, Miriam (PaintMalta), Mario (GoSicily) and I popped over to Sicily to finalise the itinerary for our three-day painting holiday May 27th - 29th. It was a whirlwind trip really, as we visited so many of the places on (and off) the original plan. Everywhere we went the people were wonderful (I think Mario knows everyone in Sicily) and the scenery was stunning.
Caroline and I, as artists, got very itchy to stop and paint instead of zipping past the endless vistas. The only chance we had was in one of the magnificent squares in Noto..... oh, and I caught a quick little sketch of a street musician.
First of all, our four-star hotel is amazing. It's a converted monestary in the middle of a golf course!
It is beautifully landscaped, surrounded by orange groves, a small lake and even a typical Sicilian dovecot in the grounds.

While we are doing our thing, the non-painting group will be out and about with Mario, who is a walking talking encyclopedia of everything Sicilian.
