Another unique trip happening soon!

I thought I’d be so busy with Grey Matter, that I wouldn’t have the time or energy for anything overseas this year. But – fate (and Art Safari!) has a way of throwing things at you, and when this trip showed up, I decided to take it!

So, I’ve renewed my watercolor palette, and switched out compose blue for a cobalt turquoise. (So yummy!) Watercolor palette 2020

A little geography quiz for you, can you name this country? Map Hint – it’s NOT in the northern hemisphere!

Answer coming in the next post!

While everyone else was wishing a happy new year yesterday, I was busy minimizing, a favorite past time of mine. I emptied out a rarely used closet, only to find these:

So many art supplies!

So many art supplies!

Yes, of course I was ecstatic to find sketchbooks and watercolor pads that I had completely forgotten existed! The negative part is – just before my Morocco trip, I went looking for sketch pads to bring, and ended up ordering new ones because I couldn’t find these, tsk, tsk.

Instead of sketching these two drawerfuls, I will instead get right to finishing up my trip sketches and blog posts. AND, I guess I’ll “need” to make a “resolution” to use my sketchbooks, and not hide them away where they’ll be forgotten.
