Several years ago, Stella Canfield, an artist born in Bulgaria, and her husband Michael established a second home in the village of Barzitsa, Bulgaria. This quintessential old world village is surrounded by forest, gorgeous fields of poppies, rape, sunflowers, corn and grains, depending on the season. Welcoming villagers watch over sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, donkeys, horses and visitors. Inspiration for your art is beyond abundant, enhanced by the quiet and slow pace of village life. With the Black Sea coast just 20 minutes away, numerous interesting small cities, villages and historic sites are conveniently available to stimulate your artist's eye. Varna, the most beloved city in Bulgaria, is only 40 miles away.
