April Fool’s Day 2015
ver went to sleep, not really. Laid down but could not sleep and so, I stayed up. Too excited about the trip, plus I had to connect one last time with Jai and the kids before we left. We are both upset about us going, but thankfully Ruthie is here to stay for the month.

And so, I just kept drawing. I sorted through my art supplies again. In doing so, I realized that I’d probably have my ink bottles confiscated. I went online and found a pen shop in Rome. Repacking my carry-on began.

I also rethought the whole brush pen thing. I haven’t used Roz Stendhal’s suggestion of brush pens though I bought them. But maybe this is a good time to try. It would be good to step up my watercolors to illustrate where Elisabetta and Miguel travel.
