I am heading back to France this summer, to take part in my second workshop with Dayle Doroshow at La Cascade. While I’m away, I’m posting some of the entries from my time in France in 2009.
Enjoy this re-post which introduces you to La Cascade. When I return I’m sure to have hundreds of new pictures and many new stories to share.
With several hundred photos to review and edit, I thought I would begin by introducing you to La Cascade, the lovely home owned by Gwen Gibson in Durfort, France. Gwen is very generous in opening up this little slice of heaven to artists so that we, too, may experience the joys of the area, indulge our senses, and release our inner muses. For more information on La Cascade visit this page.
Let’s start with the interior: the kitchen, dining room, and family room:
La Cascade is not only beautiful on the inside, but on the outside as well. Behind La Cascade is a soothing river and waterfall. Even on cool nights we kept our windows open slightly so we could be lulled to sleep by the wooshing sound of the waterfall.
And the studio where we awakened our muses:
Along with the door knocker shown at the beginning of this post, La Cascade also holds lots of sweet little niches and decor.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of La Cascade. It truly is a special place.
