Island life

Its that time of year again when we head off to warmer climes, this year one of the islands we will be visiting in the Caribbean is St Lucia.   The time away is important for recharging the batteries, thinking what I want to achieve in the coming year and set reasonable goals. 

 I am looking forward to exploring the small island and its famous landmarks of twin volcanos called the Pitous.  Part of my practice as an artist is drawing with Pentel ink pens on heavy Saunders water-colour sketch books. The sketch books have become quite formative, crucial even, and the template for ideas that emerged later whilst back at home in my studio. 

As always I will be keeping an open mind as to what I will discover.
