Creative Energy – Part I

artists painting at genius loci

 Genius Loci reverberated with creative energy this month as a wonderful Australian group of artists came to capture the essence of Umbria.  Led by well-known, award-winning Australian artist, Trevor Newman  (www.trevornewmanartist.com) from Adelaide, the members worked individually in an array of mediums, setting up here and there wherever the views or subjects struck their fancy.
