Some of the reasons for not wanting to paint....too much stuff to lug around. No where easy to set it all up. Set up and clean up is a pain. Just too much trouble to bother. I know all of these reasons come to mind and I can think of other ways to spend my time. But I know when I do get et up and painting there is no greater feeling of peace and relaxation. I could take hundreds of photos but stopping for bit and trying to see and paint the colors in front of me cannot be beat. I know that taking time out to really see and paint will help me interpret my photos with a much deeper understanding. So I have to make it easy to just get out there to paint.

It was a great week full of adventure, hundreds of photos and a few paintings. I will definitely be back!
