So I am back from the Arkansas! It was a wonderful trip-- I only wish I didn't feel guilty for over-eating and not getting anything accomplished. I did bring back Three unfinished paintings and two colored "sketches." Lost Valley trail is definitely beautiful and I wish to return with more paint and more time so as to imprint more of its unequaled beauty on paper. Happy New Year to all of you out there. I wish you the most beautiful experiences and inspiring years.
