Painting is my passion. Travel satisfies my curiosity, adds to my understanding of the world and provides endless subject matter for my paintings. I lead painting trips around the world so I can travel with other painters.
Daily painting is how I grow as an artist and how I satisfy my passion for painting. I paint as I travel and I paint in my studio. I do not limit my work to one style, one subject or one medium. Growth comes from exploration. www.sandydelehanty.com

Have Paints Will Travel to Provence, France
My friend Bonnie and I arrived in Avignon, France a couple of days before my French Escapade Watercolor Workshop. We stayed at le Colbert, a lovely little hotel recommended in Rick Steves "France"book.
We found the patio of the le Colbert the perfect place to do some warm up paintings prior to my workshop.
While having lunch in the square I sketched this man having a smoke while watching the action in the le Corp Saint square below.
Almost everyone is here now, we are having dinner at an outcoor cafe on the main square in Avignon. We are toasting to being in Paradise if the world ends (it is May 21st). The French did not understand the reason behind our toast. They must not have wacky preachers that predict the end of the world here, either that or the French media pays no attention to them.
