Whenever I go on a trip I usually bring way too many art supplies in hopes of being so inspired that I come back with a small collection of masterpieces. I finally learned that it just doesn't work out that way when that much needed vacation comes only once a year. I have since downsized to a portable watercolor set and a mini pad of watercolor paper. I painted the piece on the right while on our honeymoon in Mexico. The photo is of a house next to the condo where we stayed. I hope this post will bring some sunshine and warmth to your day as winter is fast approaching.
