these are the sketchbooks i took to art retreat no. 5
i had 5 pages left in book no. 31 which i finished. oh the feeling of completing things is GOOD.
i decided a few months ago i wasn’t going to make any more sketchbooks until i take more out of circulation by finishing them. by the way, my numbering system is completely senseless because they aren’t chronological. i need to learn to number them when i start them, not when i make them.
i did manage to do one little painting in the park. wish i had done more. the sky was so brilliant blue, the rock piles golden, purple and white mountains on the horizon.
i brought a catalogue with me, but only ended up painting these chairs. big plans thwarted by other things. whaddayagonnado?
i think a week long art retreat is in order. sister and i are plotting our summer getaway. looking for a cool place to land right here in the continental u.s.a. as we only have a week or so. is vermont cool in summer? northern washington? montana? foreign lands all.
see you soon cute peeps. do keep apprising me of your outlandish plans and great escapes.
