Lucky LUCKY me! I’m spending the summer in Europe, going to museums, soaking up the culture and beauty of Spain, France and Italy and, hopefully, becoming a better painter, and person, in the process. The first stop is Barcelona and I already feel so inspired. After spending the day at the Picasso Museum I came back to the hotel and began sketching. And did, what I think, is quite a good sketch of an early Picasso, when he was doing portraits. Moreover, it was fun doing it. I don’t think anything can be as inspiring as travel. I live to travel. It always has such a profound effect on me. Its as though I can a new set of eyes through which to see the world. It’s such a privilege.
