Preparing for a trip

Jane LaFazio here. My husband are traveling to Cuba in January (with an educational tour) and I'm excited! I've begun preparing my sketchbook for the trip. I really want to capture the experience by drawing and writing in my journal.

Inspired by Jill K. Berry's new book, Personal Geographies, I drew a map on the first page of my journal.

I've painted about half the pages with an ochre wash, and included Fidel too!

  3. I really like the idea of adding art to a journal in anticipation and preparation for a vacation.

  4. How great! I'm a little envious. I'd love to go...but since my husband was born in Havanna, there are problems with him going....like he would have to buy an additional Cuban passport and pay fees when they see his passport says he was born in Havanna...and he's not too keen on what else might happen!

    You'll see some great architecture..unfortunately, a lot of it in decay.
