|'Searching for Beauty' 5x7 plein air pastel ©Karen Margulis|
available for purchase $50
So for me I remind myself to take a break every once in awhile and just cut paper or go for a walk, throw the ball to Heidi....little things to get up from the easel or computer. Every once in awhile I need a bit more....a change of scenery. I need to travel. New sights, smells, sounds....something to refresh my spirit. I may paint like a madwoman on a trip but it is different. It is all new.
I am fortunate to have many special artist friends. They love to travel as much as I do. I will be visiting one such friend in Arizona along with two other artist friends. I can't wait. We will be doing a lot of axe sharpening and paper cutting!
|My Southwest Inspiration Book|
I made a little inspiration book for the trip. I have pasted in pictures of SW art that inspires me along with some thoughts. There is plenty of room for notes and sketches. I'll share more about the book after the trip. I do plan on blogging from the road if internet and ipad cooperate.
