A stack of travel journals.
Leslie here. Guess what? Today is my birthday! I've officially been around 59 years and I'm truly happy for Every. Single. Day.
I think this is the perfect time of year to play with Journeys as our theme because so many of us are taking some sort of getaway around this time. I just got home from a journey to southern California to hang the newest Dinner At Eight exhibition and do some studio work with my partner-in-crime, Jamie Fingal. It goes without saying that we made plenty of time to play, too!
This is a view I have a lot of experience with...
I drew this on approach into Orange CA just under two weeks ago.
It's that little thing that holds the tray table up.
Quick drawings can be painted in on the spot or filled in later..
I glued a portion of a map of Amsterdam into my journal and outlined the tram route
between Centraal Station and our hotel!
These pages have some of the bag from Delftware glued to them,
and a folded detail from a museum.
I love this: written directions from the hotel clerk to a restaurant.
No surprise that I couldn't read any of it. Between my poor Italian, his poor English
and even worse handwriting, it just didn't work out too well.
Museum & tram tickets keep company with a small watercolor of the top of
a building in Amsterdam
at the recent "Not Fade Away" conference.
One of my young friends contributed a drawing.
BTW that is me on the left.
I hope all your journeys are good ones. Remember: the journey IS the destination.
