Italy. Again.

Getting ready for another travel adventure! Soon I will be back in Italy, again on the Amalfi coast.
Here’s a map showing the location: Italy watercolor map

I also prepared something to help me hold a moleskine sketchbook with my palette.
It’s a simple piece of sturdy cardboard, covered with contact paper, using clips to hold the items.
My brush and pencil case can stand on its own, or can be clipped to the corner of the board. Holder for palette & sketchbook

So – I should be set to tackle some serious fun, making art, enjoying the Italian wine and food, and soaking up the sun and sea.

Stay tuned for updates!

Oh, go take a hike!

That is meant in the nicest way! Hiking has been shown to improve both your health and your outlook. Disclaimer:  I am not an expert hiker.  I’m not even very experienced. But I love getting out in nature and moving!
Today was a gorgeous February day!  Does this sound like an oxymoron?  Not today, we had 60 degrees and sunshine. It was a perfect day to explore the woods.
As an artist, not only do I need to prep for the hike, I also need to throw down a few sketches.

Don’t judge me! Lipstick is very helpful on the trail. Okay, it’s not helpful, I just like to wear it.
