The translation of the odd artsortment of photos above (the eyes are from a self portrait).....if you haven't figured it out yet is, I LOVE MEXICO!!! Yes, this travel slut went from skiing in Colorado, spent one day at home switching suitcases and headed off to Los Cabos, Mexico. It's been a yearly business/pleasure trip offered to us by one of our manufacturers. I had planned to not go this year. I thought it may be too much time away from responsibilities.......but, things fell into place nicely (don't you love when that happens).....and I was able to go.
"The whole world as we experience it visually, comes to us through the realm of color". -Hans Hoffman
There are some cultures, as in Mexico, that just sing with color. I feel so alive when I look around and am blasted by orange, pink, blue....you name it and it's painted on everything. Of course, the one time I have the time to actually sit down and sketch something I choose something quietly colorful. Perhaps if I had some decent materials with me I would have been a bit more adventurous.
I tried in vain to post while I was away. It's amazing how disconnected I start to feel. I can't decide if that is a good thing or a bad thing. The connection was beyond poor, so......to those of you that I haven't been able to connect with and answer I apologize.
In the meantime, I MUST mention what Seth is doing at thealteredpage. Get over there NOW!!!! I feel honored that I am a part of it. Have a seat and take a peek.
