take to the air

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

February already? No.   Say it isn't so.  This just may be at some level, a self-portrait as I run around, trying to organize myself to leave for a change of scenery for a few weeks.  Packing.  ug.  It falls in the same category as d e n t i s t.  Having spent years in a job that had me on planes regularly, I came to loathe having to leave home and I'm afraid I've generalized this to include packing for a vacation.    And having developed a mixed media habit, it's not so much the choosing of clothes to pack as it is trying to decide which art supplies to take.  I suppose digital art has its advantages as far as packing is concerned and yet, this time 'round, I'm hoping my muse may cooperate with some acrylic paint and canvases, oh and maybe some,, and ok I can fit that... well, just in case... will my new printer fit?  Critical decisions...not.

Does the drill sound familiar?

Your image made me smile this morning and I can relate to the packing experience - hate it!

I just had a weeks break and I took nothing to create with. The total break was really good for my soul. May I suggest, don't stress what you don't take!
Enjoy your break!

OH Yes. It sounds familiar! I've learnd to bring Nothing but a sketchbook, a glue stick and a couple markers...if that. I'm always checking out thrift stores and yard sales and come away with way more supplies than I need! Have fun!

That's great...I totally understand the whole art supplies dilemma. Enjoy your trip and I love your self portrait! : )

Ha...rinning around like a chicken with it head cut off...well, I hope you have your clothes on at least.

Have a great holiday; may the muse be by your side through your journey.
