I've dragged this on longer than I'd have liked to, but the good part is that Turkey has stayed with me vividly for weeks! Don't you hate it when life gets in the way of art,though? I do LOVE the warm palette that Turkey demands---and all the textures and patterns you see everywhere around you! In three weeks, I'll be gone again, but then I'll stay put until the end of the year. I'll be going to Normandy, with a quick side trip to Brittany---on the trail of gardens I have fallen in love with via the printed page! It'll be kind of a garden pilgrimage. I'll be sketching all the way, bien sûr! I'll be back here before I leave, of course. I'm always, ALWAYS trying to find the perfect sketching tools to take on trips and this is no exception. I'll be posting about that and also about my sketching process. Don't you hate to say goodbye to Turkey, though?
