Talk about heaven on earth! Positano is a dreamy destination in September and October. We went there this Fall, soaked it up, and then I came home and painted Positano this month.
Positano is one of several towns perched on the steep hills and cliffs of the scenic Amalfi Coast, located in Southern Italy. I consider myself lucky, as I have been there twice. The views, food and mood are all extraordinary. Positano is also a great spot for shopping.
To get there, drive South from Sorrento, Italy. In Southern Italy, making life pleasurable is a philosophy shared by locals and visitors alike, with a stress-free pace and an appreciation for beauty, good food and good wine.
Your favorite artist,

If you find yourself on the hunt for a new gourmet experience, look no further than the Parisian-inspired Le Diplomate, near Washington, DC's Logan Circle. Situated at the corner of delicious and divine, I meant, 14th Street and Q St., NW, it is an accurate French bistro with authentic decor and fine cooking.
Le Diplomate has the most delish version of beef bourguignon and whipped potatoes that I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. The dark chocolate napoleon beckoned, but I resisted.
The bar at Le Diplomate has a stunning Sazerac as well as many, many other cocktail selections. It may be the best-stocked bar I have ever run across.
How many more reasons do you need to go?
