How time flies! I cannot believe that it has been over a year since I posted. I am very unhappy with myself but have a good excuse for part of the time. I spent three months attending classes and traveling in Great Britain and France during 2018. And it took months to prepare for my trip so that’s my story. This was a special once-in-a-lifetime trip that was inspired by the six months my husband and I lived in Germany while I worked at Roche Diagnostics. It was also inspired by the loan of a book titled Without Reservations which is worth a read if you like unplanned adventures.

During my time in England I took two class at Cambridge University. Shakespeare in the Gardens was in full swing. Here are two small drawings I did of two of Shakespeare’s most fascinating characters – Shylock from the Merchant of Venice and Cymbelline from…drumroll…Cymbelline.

During my trip I carried my own luggage and made my own arrangements. I didn’t have much room for art materials so these were drawn in a small moleskin notebook that I bought at the British Library and with a No 2 pencil. I am glad to be sharing again and will post more from my trip later.
