Today I am getting ready to leave on vacation in Ontario. We are going to a family wedding and are staying for two weeks. I thought I would miss painting while I was gone but I decided to load my paraphernalia in my truck and for a good reason. When I was growing up my younger sister used to draw and paint but dropped it as I did because life took over. Something neither of us should have done but we can't help the choices we made when we were younger so I will move along. Anyway she has been watching me paint for the last couple of years and she wants me to bring some of my gear up and give her some pointers and show her what to buy so she can start painting.When she was in her twenties she used to copy comic photos to wall murals like Little Mermaid and the proportions would be correct so she will be a fabulous artist and I can't wait to see what she does!

This is exciting as I will be watching an emerging artist began! I will record how it happens with photos and will post it when I get back!

Where will you be? If you're coming to Toronto, let me know. I'd love to meet up, even if just for a quick coffee! We artists must stick together!
