After a recent visit to Jacksonville, Florida to attend a cousin's wedding, I took a week to indulge in a little art-focused roadtrip as I worked my way back to the DC area and home. This trip had three goals: 1) sketch and photograph potential future paintings, 2) visit local art galleries, studios, and museums along the way, and 3) simply take a break from my normal routine and indulge in a little me-time. It was successfully all of those things and more!
This trip showed me Jacksonville's broad sandy beaches and wetland marshes, Savannah's park-like squares and live oak trees, Charleston's historic streets and waterfront park, and Wilmington's Cape Fear River and beautiful gardens. I have more reference photos and painting ideas now than I know what to do with!

I am so very glad that I was able to take the time for this roadtrip and break from routine. Thank you, thank you, to my husband and mother-in-law for taking over my responsibilities at home and making it possible for me to be gone (and mostly carefree) for so long. And thank you to my "Mamma" and "Awnt" for joining me on this adventure. :-)
