Dreaming of Travel

Today I got out one of my sketchbooks for inspiration - and to dream of traveling again.

What you see in this sketch is a scene in Ceret, France, a town where Henri Matisse visited, and Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque lived. I didn’t even realize it at the time, but the coffeeshop that I was sitting in was the same one that many of the artists visited while they were living there! I looked around while sipping my cup of espresso, and I found inspiration in the french door latch, on the window next to my table:

The weather in Georgia is a little cool today, with a quiet breeze, also reminding me of the clear crisp days in Ceret. The light there was that fantastically clear Mediterranean light that you may have heard tell of.

I hope that you dream of things you love today, too.
