"If you wait a long time between sessions of messing around in your sketch book you are bound to feel a little awkward when you start again."
This is what my alter ego told my unconscious mind as I dabbled with the paints tonight in a rather ungainly fashion.
In my defense, I was imagining sitting in the apartment in Amserdam with my sister eating stroopkoeken and sipping tea at that little table by the window. No matter, it's all about the fun, and I can repaint over it all if I want to.
Finally I resorted to writing letters and coloring them in after which a border was added that could also be colored in. All very good therapy when you are wishing with all your might you were exploring a city 4,483.5 miles away. I have been assured that we will return to this very location in 2014 or 2015 and retrace each and every step. Sister, I am holding you to it.
