It’s funny how things turn out. Traveling has always been one of my loves – the desire to see new places and experience the world has always been strong with me. It started in grade school when we were able to choose a state or country to do a project on. I would always choose, what I believed to be, the most magical place to write about. I guess it’s no surprise that I married someone from a far away land…He’s from The Netherlands if you didn’t know that already :).
So, here I am years later, a Park West Artist (pinch me!!!!), being booked on a cruise to the Caribbean where they will be selling my paintings. Paintings that I was able to paint without anyone directing or micromanaging me. Seriously…pinch me. It’s actually been several years since we’ve traveled at all…mostly because of covid, but also because we have a son in middle school. That darn school schedule definitely hampers your dream vaca. So this cruise was the first vacation Remmie and I took on our own in a long while. And it was fabulous!!! Lots of relaxing, wandering, exploring, and of course, eating :p. Cuz what’s a cruise without some delicious food.
But the best part of the trip was meeting a whole group of fabulous people who share at least one thing in common…They love to collect art! And, I have a sneaking suspicion, they also love to travel ;).
Glad you and Remco got to get away and you got to sell work and meet collectors. Living the dream, girl…(but you put in the work. Enjoy the fruit of your labors.)
