A nice day in Nice... tee hee

I woke homesick this morning.  But thanks to a wonderful talk on skype with my hubby and ellie I felt much better.  So I ventured out a couple of times today and was glad I did.  The weather was gray and bleak this morning but by this afternoon it cleared and was beautiful. 

There is a wonderful art supply store not far from my hotel.  After choosing a lovely small sketchbook I made my way to the beach.  Did some sketching, attracted a flurry of japenese tourists and soaked up some sun.

When I began planning this trip I said I would be sketching everyday.  My well traveled critique group buddies said I probably wouldn't have time, guess what, they were right.  I'm so busy looking that I rarely stop to sketch. Maybe with my new sketchbook that will change.  One can only hope...

Heh - I think I drew once the entire 2 weeks I was in Italy. Too much to see and soak in~! Keep taking lots of pictures. That will help.

And maybe in a few years we should try going over for the entire summer. We might be able to sketch/paint then. :-)
