Thoughts About Vacations
Long time no news...
As I am booking my next trip to Europe, I realize that the last vacation was when I stopped my VLog updates, or any updates for that matter.
Although Molly and I had a great trip, it wasn't very productive for art or writing. I always overestimate what I will be able to do in terms of time or motivation.
So here are the things I’ve learned from my last year's trip:
It’s challenging to find some quiet time to create when visiting family (kind of impossible).
Trying to paint with a traveling kit of mediocre quality doesn’t work for me. I hate it.
Maybe it’s nice to take a break from painting and try something different, like sketching.
Taking a break also feels good to feel eager to paint again when back.
Sometimes, the inspiration is not there on vacation, and it’s more of a nourishing time.
I'm determined to do better this year! :)
