i'm back and it's not easy to know where to start after you've been gone for a month! i had such a great time; saw so much, did so much, laughed so much...
here's my family - we were all in virginia beach for my nephew's wedding; left to right: me, my mother, my brother and sister (her son got married).
my son went with me - i loved that!!
i took so many pictures! just to give you a little view of virginia beach, here's the statue of neptune that the city commissioned near the boardwalk. the sign said that thousands of tons of bronze were used to cast it. mind boggling...
what i took with me were two 4" x 4" muslin books. each book had 12 pages, so there were 48 sides in all and i filled most of them while i was gone. i put pogo prints on some of the pages, but mostly i drew faces... i'm gonna start with the first faces that i drew and post more over the next few days. the only things i used were colored pencils and my mechanical pencil. i never used any of the other supplies that were in the box in the last post!
of all the traveling art stuff i've ever taken with me, this combination of muslin and colored pencils was the best. completely portable and easy to use anywhere - no water or clean-up needed. i was happy.... : )
before i left, we went to my favorite store in roanoke, la de da, where i found these amazing boots for 75% off. the words inside the box seem especially appropriate for this post, and for sweet renee. renee, i am blowing you kisses...
"...To all you roamers, rovers and rolling stones who know the destination is the journey, ramble on..."
