One of the most exciting experiences were the visits to the open studios of the artists in Gaucin in Andalucia.This year again 17 artists opened theirwork shops to the public. A date that is marked in red in my calendar. The drive is a yellow intoxication of blooming bushes, the road a adventure of a colorful quilt in a fantastic landscape. But also from the artistic angle this is an event which is a must. The 17 work shops are spread out through the small white village and the way leads through alleys to private homes and the work shops of the artists. Time and again you can grasp a glimpse of the wide landscape through the small streets.Should you need a rest – there are many tempting small tapas bars and restaurants which are marked on the map of the event in Gaucin and can be down loaded.
