We met in a lovely farmhouse in Cortona, Italy to experience a workshop based upon a technique called 'story painting' that I discovered while painting and writing the book The Art of Daily Cultivation. The technique helps writers illustrate and illustrators write stories. During the day we painted in the cobblestone streets and outside by the pool. We enjoyed amazing restaurants and consumed vino Italian style at night. I created a magazine that summarized the student's work and Cortona village adventures.
