“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”
― Hans Christian Andersen

Baja Mexico 

Painting on location, horseback riding, hiking, wine tasting, margaritas, yummy home cooked meals, cosy cabins, transportation from the border....need I say more? 
This is an all inclusive retreat in beautiful Guadalupe Valley in Baja, Mexico. 

The 2,800 acre ranch sits in an oak lined valley just north of Baja’s scenic “Ruta del Vino” between Tecate and Ensenada, approximately 1½ hours south of the border.

It is a working ranch, as you would have found in Baja California over 100 years ago. Oaks and sycamore trees, seasonal creeks and springs, rugged hillsides, boulders and local wineries provide inspiration for painting, sketching, and photography.



I'll return to La Cascade in Southern France with Lynn Leahy for our retreat! May 12 to 19, 2020 
 This workshop has been canceled. We are very saddened by the world event but hope to reschedule in the future.

Hello, Helen! Will not be able to do Mexico this year, but I see you'll be in PHX for Art Unraveled, so I will probably catch you there!
