I had the most fabulous gift of a 2 week vacation to Italy and France in May. As expected I have returned inspired by all the beauty of the landscapes that I was graced with seeing. I came upon a store that sold pigment, so I invested my cash, it is so nice to use, not sure if I will be able to go back to paint in a tube. I am currently working on a poppy painting, I think there must be some law out there somewhere that if you visit France in May, you have to paint a poppy picture.
Applying to a handful of festivals and shows, should hear back on may in the next couple of months. I will keep you posted as to where and when to find me. :) Have a creative day, be in love with your world.
