SOUTHERN CROSS ARTVENTURES PRESENTS . . .
Painting holidays with ADELE EARNSHAW and JOE GARCIA in Adele’s home country of New Zealand!


Unlike traditionally structured painting workshops where students spend the day in the studio with only one or two excursions to paint on location, this will be a laid-back adventure and your studio will be the beaches, islands and rain forests of the the Bay of Islands, where Adele now resides!

Back in the Motherland!

I'm back in the part of New Zealand where my sister, Joanne, and I grew up, the Kowhai Coast about an hour north of NZ's largest city, Auckland.  This afternoon the temp has been about 70 F, a little blustery at times as if it might rain, but then the sun comes out again.  Starting tomorrow, it is supposed to be clear and sunny - just in time for our Painting Holiday which starts in the morning after we pick up our seventeen American guests at the Auckland Airport.  
We hope to blog daily during this week's painting holiday, so stay tuned!
