To travel and paint ….. to paint and travel. To pass along the various methods I’ve learned or discovered to express the life I awaken to each morning …. To make connections, on a daily basis, with new people from all walks of life and to add, in a positive way, to the rhythm of the Universe …. Those have always been my goals.
As those goals become reality, other aspects of daily life require adjusting. There are only twenty four hours in each day. I had filled those hours completely before needing to upgrade my online presence, before needing to plan for days lost to airports and cars, travel logistics, packing everything into manageable suitcases. It’s challenging and totally worth every frustration that crosses my path.
Developing new approaches to teaching the basics drives me along paths I might not have explored. I discover techniques I had forgotten and I stumble across techniques I haven’t tried before. My own work grows when I share my painting experiences with others.
