i set up an outdoor studio table in the shade today. played in the travel journal. only finished 1 page though because mostly i was busy watching the hummers buzz & zip through the patio, trees, and a few inches from my head. they're pranksters those birdies.
about the travel journal. you know how it is. some pages you dig others you want to rip out. i'm putting them all out here in chronological order for the most part. the good the bad and the ugly. please don't rush to reassure me that none are ugly. not necessary. i'm not fishing for compliments. just letting you know that i am not madly in love with every page! and that is okay because in 20 years when i pick up this book i'm going to love the entire thing. every last mark. every last word.
i went to amsterdam and this is what i came home with.
tomorrow when the working stiffs of the world hit the road to the office i'm going back outside with my coffee and paint brushes. it's important that i say that as much as possible before reporting for duty in early january. in an upcoming post i'll write a bit more about my decision to return to work and what the future holds. but for right now…it's sunday night and i don't have any place i have to be in the morning. except outside watching the hummers argue over who's going first at the feeder.
