I am so grateful that I have had a few visits during my hiatas. I have been out of touch for several months. I have been uninspired and unmotivated and have been taking a break. Not a total break and so I will do some catch-up and hope that sharing will pull me back into the blog-o -sphere. I have missed my blogging friends and hope to take more time to look at your creative work.
OK now, going back to May. I was luck enough to have a chance to visit Napa Valley with my daughter. She atttended a “bootcamp” at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). I had time to explore and to do some sketching while she was in class each day. I was fascinated by the golden dryness of the hills at the entry to the valley. Beautiful, rolling , sun bleached but dotted with green…they inspired my first pencil sketch.
I also start my trips with a short shopping expedition. I love scented soaps and scented sprays to spritz on a sun parched face. My first afternoon I did a quick sketch as I sipped an iced tea.
More to follow…I am glad to be back.
