Dinner has often been delayed or canceled altogether because I’ve been distracted by the pattern of the fishbones or the brilliant colors of the stir-fry. Rather than a delicious meal I end up with another sketchbook page that documents the beauty of the incomplete meal. My waking hours are filled with distractions of patterns, shapes, values, textures and colors. This evening was no exception.
Now that I’ve learned the secret of packing light for travel (don’t bother to take any clothes other than what you wear on the plane) it should take no more than fifteen minutes to pack for a trip of any length of time and for any destination …. one carry-on and one messenger bag. I started packing two and a half hours ago and only my tent, my stool and the mouth atomizers for my students have made it into the carry-on.
Maybe I’ll have better luck packing in the morning.
Sketchbook Drawing: Drawn first with Lamy Safari, EF fountain pen, followed by watercolor – testing out the paper in the watercolor sketchbook I’m planning to take to Provence in June. The paper is Strathmore… I like it!
Note: If you are attending next weekend’s workshop in Santa Rosa, CA and want a Color Scheme Game Kit, please let me know so that I can bring it with me. I leave early Wednesday morning and won’t be able to ship the kits until I return to NJ near the end of May.
