Going, going, gone.......

We are off tomorrow for two glorious weeks in Tucson! I am very excited to go for two weeks this year. We will get to do more new things as well as a few of our old favorites. Tohono Chul Park is an all time favorite for one. We never miss that place. I could sit there all day and draw and I have done that before. And then onto Tuscon Botanical Gardens to see the lovely gardens as well as the Beata Wehr show in the gallery.

We are going to try and go to Phoenix to see Chihuly at the Desert Botanical Gardens as well as a trip to Bisbee. We have never been to either place before.

And we will see all our friends who spend the entire winter out there. Lucky them!

I am only bringing two sketchbooks and my Pitt pens, Pigma pens and white gel pens. It will be hard to live with only these few supplies but I will do a ton of drawing which is always a good thing to work out the kinks that have been manifesting themselves lately.  I have been a bit uninspired. I think it is the winter doldrums setting in. Hopefully a few hikes up Sabino Canyon will help!

I may post a blog from out there. I am bringing my computer after all. Can't live without that! Although I must say I do miss the pre-computer days sometimes.

Mostly I can't wait to see the sun! Oh and the blue, blue sky. What a treat that will be.

See you soon!

Sounds lovely! Especially after this very LOOONG winter!. Once upon a time I lived in Tucson (for only a few months). I can't wait to see all the wonderful artwork this trip will inspire. Have fun!-Julie

The weather has cooled and the sky is rich winter blue. Spring started early this year, so you'll have blooming citrus and the California Poppies to delight you! Welcome back!
