London and Paris 2014


Since I was about 11 years old and discovered a slim, university bound in dark blue tome of Shakespeare’s sonnets I’ve wanted to go to England. I memorized the kings and queens from 800 ad on and read anything and everything I could about the history.  My mother in law, knowing this started the planning a big trip last year then left it up to me and bam.  Last month I with 8 other members of my weird and wonderful extended family went to London and Paris with a stop in Salisbury/Stonehenge along the way.  So many photos.. do people really like to look at other peoples vacation photos… I do.  So here is a mixed up jumble of where we when and what we saw.  My family snapshots chosen out of 100’s by jut picking what caught my eye this time through.  What did I like the most.. walking to the grocery at dusk in Paris in the light rain.  What did I like the least, the photo frenzies in the Louvre.. no one looks at the art, it’s all a race to take selfies with it and  I found it very sad.  What was the highlight, watching Ares embrace everything different, from asking for crisps in the store to directing us on the subway!  My ten year old took on two of the biggest cities in the world like a world travler and that is a gift that is beyond priceless to me.


(sean took most of the selfies on his iphone :) (not in the louvre) and you can see them on my instagram :) )

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
