The ‘Inspiring Destinations’ exhibition is finished now, but it was viewed by thousands of visitors to Filoli garden. I received so many wonderful comments, it was awesome. An artist could not expect more. Many of the paintings have been purchased, but there are many more still available, and remain at the very special prices which can still be found on this page: http://jannpollard.com/karen-brown-guides-paintings/
I am heading for Italy in a week to teach painting in Tuscany at Villa Nobile and in Lake Como. I plan to return with many new inspirations from which to paint. You can follow along vicariously with the photos I will be posting at these links:

A Collection of Paintings by Jann Pollard for Karen Brown Guides
Feb 5 – Apr 14, 2013
Karen Brown’s Travel Guides are recognized as the most personable and reliable guides to the Inns and Bed and Breakfasts of Europe, United States and Mexico. For many travelers Filoli has been a destination while visiting California and we hope to encourage our visitors to experience new exciting places through this beautiful exhibit. As the cover artist for the Karen Brown Travel Guides, Jann Pollard has completed 138 beautiful paintings of inspiring destinations. This special exhibit will display 54 of those paintings, enabling our visitors to travel the globe, purchase a painting of their favorite destination or one they wish to visit and be inspired to see new places. This is a very special opportunity, exclusively made to Filoli, it’s visitors and members. (Filoli is a National Trust Garden in Woodside, near San Francisco.) More details to follow.
I have just put up some photos from the most recent Holiday Painting Art Workshop in Tuscany. We stayed in this fabulous villa, Villa Nobile where we could paint in an art studio, toured the fabulous area near Cortona, and dined on some amazing Tuscan food.
