Goin' camping!

Hi folks.  This is just a note to let you know I'll be away for five days camping.  I wish I could take my painting along but alas, I won't have any electricity to dry the paint....the one disadvantage to Genesis oils.  I will take my sketching journal but it will be a time of swimming, canoeing and lots of reading.  I might do a little writing but no promises. 

September is always my time to start fresh with new goals, new projects and new schedules.  I will spend part of my holiday deciding how I will do all that.  I know I will be working through Richard Robinson's course on Mastering Colour this fall.  I'll also start working on my first portrait commission (scary). 

Probably the hardest thing (as usual) will be to get fit and lose weight.  I do plan on making that easier by canoeing and eating lots in the next week.  I think that should work because canoeing will really build the muscles and if I gain lots of weight before September then I have lots of fresh weight to lose when I start my new routine.  We all know it's easier to take off new weight than the old stuff that's glue on.

Anyway dear friends I will miss you.

  1. Rather amused by your weight loss logic, Bonnie. I'd like to say I'll join you when you begin but alas...I am not sure I'd be good at sticking to a diet. That said, I am hoping my SIL will track at least a week's worth of menus when she and her husband begin eating healthy and organic soon. I really need to make changes. Just don't want to do the work. Anyway, I hope you have a fabulous time. It sounds like so much fun!!

  2. Enjoy your vacation, Bonnie. Look forward to seeing more of your beautiful work when you get back. Don't forget to share the sketches, too. I enjoy seeing sketchbooks so much.
