Darla Bostick – 2016 Art Calendar, Spring Portugal Tour, Watercolor classes, Ghost Ranch Workshop / Retreat

Bostick 2016 art calendar

Every year the calendar sells out! To be sure you get as many as you need for personal use or for friends, family and clients, let me know NOW.

This is my 6th year to offer a beautiful calendar of heavy card-stock that shares 12 of my paintings. Many of the images in the calendar have been accepted into juried art exhibitions, solo shows and printed works–some even won awards!! This is by far the most reasonable way to enjoy my art work.

My calendar is $20 (plus shipping–usually $2.50 for one, less when several are sent to the same address) and I’ll sign each one if requested. Order 5 or more and get the 6th one free. Time to order yours…my 2016 Calendar images are posted on my website:  www.darlabostick.com

Come visit Portugal in the Spring! Darla is taking a group in April – 8-18,2016
We will begin our adventure with arrival in Lisbon on Friday, 8 April (you will need to leave home the day before!). Our villa is in the Algarve region of Portugal along the southern coastal area in Albufiera. Each of us will have our own bed, but will share a bedroom. We have the flexibility to prepare our breakfast at “home” then we head out for the day with sketchbooks or small paint blocks and cameras. The goal of the trip is to gather images primarily with our cameras. Every day we will explore a new village and take an hour out to rest/relax/sketch or paint. The plan is to eat out once a day–if we picnic for lunch we buy dinner out, if we eat lunch out then we prepare dinner at the villa (maybe on the grill). Your meals are not incuded in the price but we keep expenses low. Tentatively, it includes Evora, Sagres, Alte, Faro and Albufiera, Monchique, Lisbon and the gypsy market in Loule’! As the itinerary develops there may be some changes.

You can email Darla for the details with photographs of the villages we visit and the villa. Plans are still under construction but the ballpark figure is $2000 each for the 10 days and includes the car rental, lodging and admissions. If you are interested, let Darla know right away and she will send you flight information. She flies from DFW).

8 spaces fill quickly…reserve your place now for this extraordinary Art Adventure! Currently there are 4 spots left.

And, if you want more time in Portugal, be sure to ask Darla about the added 8-day Douro River Cruise in northern Portugal which includes Porto, Regue, Penhao, Vega de Teron, Salamanca, Senhora de Ribiera, Ferradosa and Bitetos! Dates for the cruise are 18-25 April and it FILLS FAST! The cost is $2385 per person (gratuities not included).
