Almost time to Leave

I received a keyboard for my iPad for Christmas, & I installed the WordPress App, so I thought I would test it today. I have a new suitcase from Columbia in which I have packed a watercolor board, several sheets of Arches 140# 1/4 sheet papers, and a box of art supplies, (including Copic pens in shades of grey, Copic refills, colored watercolor pencils, mechanical pencils, lead, and 2 brush pens. These are nestled at the bottom of my suitcase.

In my carry-on daypack, I have a new Aquabee sketchbook in the larger 9″x12″ size. I loved my little square one that I filled last winter in Mexico. I think this larger size will allow me to record more complicated locations. Aquabee sketchbooks accept watercolor and Copic ink beautifully.

I also have in my daypack a new Sakura watercolor travel palette and a new brush bag, (also a Christmas present). I filled this bag with my favorite brushes, a mask pen, a brush tip pen, and a pencil. I may get some people sketches done in the airport, and putting the brush bag in my carry-on will prevent it from becoming a lost-luggage causality.

Many people have asked me to blog while I am in Mexico. I plan to go sketching most days, so I will bring my phone to take pictures of what I am working on, plus photos of the local color. These I can airdrop to my Ipad. Let’s test this out. Success!! I’m not sure how to tag or set feature images, and the App has crashed twice while composing this post, but I think blogging from Mexico will be doable! Hasta pronto en Mexico!!

Note expansion zipper is open, (though I have nothing in the outside pockets……..yet)

I have been a lifelong rider and horse lover. I got my first "horse" at a yard sale; it was a pony actually. It was sometime in the early 60's. I was in 3rd or 4th grade. The pony was perhaps $10. My sister, brother, and I pooled our money and led him home. At the time my parents were traveling, and my Uncle Bill promptly made us return it. (stay tuned...more to come...)
