Well, here I am at the Winnipeg airport and, like a little girl, can hardly contain myself- I am so excited! The interesting thing is that when I checked in for my flight, Air Canada had me flying to Rome, not Venice. For some reason there were 2 complete bookings for me and if I’m not careful I may end up in two places at once!
I would like to welcome you to my new blog site! I look forward to sharing with you some of my experiences as I explore the other side of this wonderful world of ours.
My plan is to sketch and paint my way through Italy while also writing of my experiences. When visiting Greece 2 years ago I discovered combining my writing with the images I created helped me to better connect and remember my experiences. This in turn also helped others to understand why I chose to paint the things I did. The most interesting thing about this is the way my work has evolved because of the response from you, the viewer. On this journey I intend to keep an open mind and allow the ideas to flow. I have no agenda except to allow my mind the freedom to be open to the artistic opportunities around me.
I hope you find the entries that follow in the days ahead to be interesting, insightful and above all, inspiring. That is after all what life should be!
Thank you for being a part of my artistic journey.
