After travelling in many different ways, I have come to the realization that I don't really like to paint outside of my home and studio. I do like bringing small moleskine sketchbooks with me in order to jot down notes and make small sketches, but I really do love to keep the messy creative stuff at home. So, it was wonderful to get back to the studio after travelling this time, and to utilize my travel time to spend quality time with my husband, to relax and refresh, and to get a lot of reading done. I was itching to get back to my 'Fashion Plates' series. This is painting number 16 of a planned 22 piece body of work. I'm beginning to see the finish line which is very exciting to me!
