Gearing up for another trip to La Bonne Etoile

Well, it looks like it's going to be another wonderful time in France in June. Both of my classes are filling, air fares are dropping. I'm practicing my French with language CDs in my car. Or ma voiture. There are a few spaces left and I'd dearly love to fill them. If you want to get an idea of what to expect from the trip, you can view my 2010 May and June blog archives, (start at the bottom and go up if you want a chronological journal). The trip is a no-brainer, since you'd be picked up at the airport and returned, with everything taken care of in between.

I'll be blogging my way through the trip again; blogging has proved to be a wonderful way for me to record my own memories (what incredible technology we have today). But I think the more the merrier, so I'd love to encourage anybody who can to consider coming along.


  1. Chere' Margaret,

    Je regrette que je ne puisse pas aller à votre atelier chez La Bonne Etoile.
    J'ai étudié le français depuis deux ou trois années pour souffrir, mais jamais visité. Les vœux de vous un temps magnifique votre deuxième fois autour de.
    Peinture heureuse!

    OK, Ok, I used a translator because my French is a bit weak, but just to say I REALLY WISH I could go to your splendid painting excursion in France!

    À bientôt

  2. Brenda,

    Je voudrais que vous puissiez venir avec nous aussi!

    I was able to read half of what you wrote, and had to go to Google Translater to understand the rest of it. It was fun trying to translate though. thanks for your amusing message.

    J'ai visité votre site web - votre art est belle!


  3. Great Margaret! Looking forward to following along here at least. It's so good to see a talent like yours succeeding in such a cool venue.

  4. For anyone who has ever dreamed of a painting adventure, La Bonne Etoile is perfect! I'd been there in a heartbeat, Margaret, if I could.

    I'm a veteran of several weeks there, and have loved every minute. All you have to do is get to Paris, Kippy and Jerome take care of everything else!
