thursday.. is it friday yet?
Well I am back from vacation from the
beautiful and ever amazing Cancun, Mexico. Here is the lovely view from our room. There were a few thunder storms during our stay due to it being the tail end of hurricane season. It would rain so hard that water would leak into our room, but for the most part there was still plenty of sun and extremely humid.
We were able to go to Chichen Itza one of the days on a all you can eat and all you can drink bus and a ton of shopping. Chichen Itza was just crowned one of the wonders of the world in the last few years and it is pretty old and intense. There is a head cemetery where the losing team's soccer captain would be be-headed but he would receive his own grave stone with a skull on it. Then there was a heart cemetery where they would put the hearts. There were also stone snakes everywhere! Did I mention there was fabulous shopping? Did I also mention it was all you can eat and all you can drink?
During our stay I got a lot of reading, relaxing, and reflecting done. Don't we all need that? I feel re-energized and re-focused on art and life. I am going to be working on a landscape series of places around Oregon. I also finished up my Art House Co-op canvas project. I did a little series of these hopping black/brown birds with a long tail and beady eyes. I'm waiting for them dry before I post.
