Teaching Landscapes

I taught some beginner landscape classes while I was in Jordan. Here we are using my laptop to look at pictures of date palms. Some of the women in the group like to work at a table while others are happy on the floor with me. Since meals are eaten on the floor everyone is comfortable sitting like this. No yoga mats required!

Not too bad for first try protoptypes! We'll keep working on our landscape painting when I go back in April. And eventually we'll be good enough to paint en plein air in the beautiful landscape surrounding the town.


  1. Jean, you are amazing! Such an interesting project, and beautiful results. Will the bags available here in Seattle or online? All the best, Liisa.

  2. Hi Liisa! I just sent you an email. I don't have plans to sell in Seattle yet - there are complex import duties on cotton - but never say never. At the moment you'll have to come to Jordan to buy them! (-:
