A colorful rendition of the World in blue and red…
Map Of The World 2
Mixed Media Painting
Where have you always wanted to travel? I think the next on my list will be Canada. We just got back from a mini-vacation to Venice…..Florida that is. And while we didn’t go far, it sure was lovely to get away from work and home responsibilities for awhile. Just the sand, surf and a tropical drink in my hand….ahhhh But back to work!
Where do you want to go?
It is said that reading takes you to far away places in your mind and let’s you experience a place without moving from your chair. I feel the same way about painting and creating. I can choose to go to Paris, France for instance. I can immerse myself in colors and shapes from any time and place. Looking at this view of the Eiffel Tower “takes me there” in a way. It is such a magnificent structure that I feel I have enhanced in my art. This piece is a composite painting using a vintage post card and layers of other imagery. My choice of nebula brings to mind a timelessness and connectivity of all. I can see this place…and if I close my eyes, I can feel it too….

I get asked that question often. A lot of people I know love to travel. My In-Laws just got back from Africa recently. A good friend had an adventure in Cuba last month. My husband lived in Indonesia for a few years. And the list goes on. I like the “idea” of traveling more than the actual experience. I love to “see” the world and wish there was a way to beam myself to various locals just long enough to take it in. Bypassing the long flights, nasty airports, restrooms….sleeping in strange place. Odd food. I am not exactly a homebody though. I’ve been to a few places as far away as Hawaii which is pretty far considering I live in Florida. And I have been to many cities all over the United States, but I have never been to another country. I’ve got plans….. I know it isn’t too far, but Canada is the first place I want to visit off of U.S. soil. Where have you been? And where do you want to go?
