During the summer, Mrs. Hill teaches the history of Italian art and architecture at La Romita School of Art at Terni, Italy. Painting on location in Italy and also among the gentle lakes and woods near her home in Hillsdale is Adabelle's favorite way of working. Her watercolor landscapes and flowers express her joyous response to nature.
