Last day before ‘Epic’ adventure

Last day at home before starting the journey to Russia. After heavy showers the sun has now come out, I think we’ve only had a couple of dry afternoons in 6 weeks, it was spring , then rain now the berries and darkening nights tell us Autumn is coming. No matter, I’m off to the heat & the sun to paint in Russia for 12 days. If you’ve seen the news you will be well aware that there has been a heat-wave over there and wildfires a causing devastation, this last week the smoke has caused airport closures- at the moment the two airports we need are open so fingers crossed it stays that way.

I thought a picture of my unkempt garden & house would be a suitable photo to launch us on our journey of exotic lands. Myself & fellow traveler Lynn hope to keep up blogs of our adventure depending on the internet availability, Lynn’s is here.

my bag is crammed with my brushes & paints, the ‘studio’ is tidied, laptop loaded with my favorite Celtic art reference pictures. Just time to try & learn some Russian phrases, or finish some of the work hanging over me or….possibly RELAX a little? since the last 2 months have been exhausting and flat out with work. There I’ve done it, said the ‘R’ word.

next blog We’ll be on our way & I’ll write some about the symposium theme ‘Breath of the Epic’.

    Vicky, have a safe and fun journey – take lots of pics for us, and if you visit Siberia, let me know how it is, ha ha (I've always wanted to go there for some reason).
