next time you drive out to the desert and head to palm springs promise me you'll crank up a frank sinatra cd. you will feel totally glamorous. even if your jalopy is dirty and you're wearing stretch pants and big rubber crocs. true story.
here are all of the pages i created while in the desert:
i just draw what i see! oh and…drawing with a color brush pen is way easier if you have a beer first.
copied from: on the left-coloring book. on right pam's journal. it's a visual journal, not fine art. anything goes. whenever i go to an art retreat with friends it always happens. we grab each other's books and have a copyfest. 100% fun!
pam made one of the signs on the bottom right. so i did too!
after taxes, fees, & pool heating charges THIS place set us back approx. 475 buckeroos each. in case you were wondering. i always do. seems expensive for 3 nights, but considering the size, indoor, outdoor space, pool, jacuzzi, and 3 nice tables to choose from, a fridge full of beer/soda left over from the last tenents, a welcome basket, super nice owner, and total privacy; i think it's a good investment. the mood enhancing benefits can't be overlooked either!
in other news, a fieldtrap to UCLA with my new class of cute kiddos yesterday left me exhausted. it's an enormous campus and hilly. oyvey. sister & i are having a facetime journal fest at noon. then i'm hunkering down in my bear cave for a long winter's nap. life is good in the hood. hope this dispatch finds you happily puttering away at something that thrills & delights. i'll just be here restin' and relaxin'…
