And people, you guys, people! They are great and beautiful. So my top three travel attractions are nature, people and food ;)
Ah, I really got in the mood for traveling again. After Indiana was born it hasn't been a priority, not even of much interest. But this trip went so well with her, she was a great travel companion and she was having such a great time too, that it ignited that spark in me again. I know it's not great for the environment though. Taking fewer but longer trips would help reduce flying... which is a pain anyway.
One thing I can say is this: I'm so glad that we are not too far from spring! Granted, it doesn't look like that when I look out of my window right now. But a couple of months from now is Easter, and then it's almost summer again. As much as I am for living in the moment, I would be lying if I denied that the winter up here is just too long for me and that didn't long for the spring to come. I love winter for a month. But last year we had snow for SIX MONTHS. It gets to me big time.
Next up for our family is checking out our friends' apartment and seeing if we could move in there. If I we move there and I get Indi in the church club for some hours in a week, I might have the time and energy to start thinking about painting again. I have some vague thoughts and ideas about it.. and they are different.
If you are wondering how my exhibition went - it was fine. People seemed to like it. I sold paintings for 6400 euros which meant that after gallery rent and commission I was left with less than 500 euros. LOL! At least I MADE something instead of just PAYING to have a show which was a real risk. You have to sell quite a bit to actually make some money. Such is the business of having gallery shows.
Bye for now you beautiful souls.
