That being said, I'm going for something a little closer to the beaches and to downtown. My house up in the Summerville suburbs is fantastic and has given me all kinds of room to create, but I'm ready to go someplace new. Wouldn't it be cool to live in a place where everyday could include a sketchbook, some watercolors and a cold beer? Hmmmmmm. So soon.
This pic is actually from a trip up to Myrtle Beach. My dear friend Bette and her husband Brian go there every year to celebrate their anniversary. Luckily for me, they had an extra room to spare in their condo and allowed me to celebrate a few days with them. The weather wasn't all that lovely, but just getting to spend time laughing, shopping, eating, and doing a little creating was perfect. I look forward to many more days like that soon.
It's going to be a hard transition from the workaday regimen I have now to that of student-artist-part-time-job girl, but as I take steps like finding the right place to live it starts to become more and more real. On that note, I'm going to savor the joy of this little palm tree picture, think about trimming the palmettos in the yard, and dream about creating...for a living. Wow.
