Some (practical and sane) people pack when they're about to go on a trip. Some other kinds of people make packing still lifes and sketch them. So there you are. (Click on image for bigger version --you can read the captions there. If you can read my handwriting at all.)
We're leaving WAY too early Tuesday morning aka way too late Monday night, for Hilo, on the big island of Hawaii. We're staying at a b and b that has its own waterfall! Outside, one assumes.
We leave next Monday, returning home Tuesday, February 26. In addition to the items pictured here, I'm taking my laptop. I'm taking lots more art supplies, but you've seen all that before (except now I use Schmincke paints.) I'm taking more clothes than just these, of course, and some toothpaste. I've got a smidgeon of couth, you know.
I will be posting while in Hawaii, so check back, won't you? I'd like to thank, before I go, the wonderful Katherine Tyrell, artist and author of the inestimable blog Making a Mark, for featuring my 2008 quest for water in her today's "Who's made a mark this week?" post. You'll see many other artists mentioned, including several of my artblogger co-conspirators like Casey, Wally, Felicity, Dee and oh, just go and see for yourself! Somebody around here has to pack!
A little postscript: Laurelines turns three years old on February 26th! And here we are, still toddling along.
