Whenever I travel, it takes about 4 days to get into the relaxing groove. It's as if I have been holding my breath and I finally exhale. So early in the trip, I was still revved up and feeling guilty because I didn't have time to sketch, or even think about my art making. Once I finally relaxed, I began to SEE! When will I learn that seeing and experiencing new things can inform everything that I do?
For a landscape painter, Scotland is heaven. Here are some photographs from that trip, (not all landscape material) along with one sketch that I made from the breakfast room window inside our Bed & Breakfast in St Andrews. A shout out THANK YOU to the owners of Castlemount who made our visit to St Andrews very special! If you are ever in St Andrews, I highly recommend a stay there.
Happy to have you here. This is where you will see work in progress, tips about making art, seeing art, and enjoying art. You will also see ways to live life like an artist.
