SAY YES TO ADVENTURE!

If you had told me in 2001 (when I first started experimenting with paint) that I would have confidence to go to Florence, Italy to take a workshop, I would have not believed you.

But through twists and turns in life, I did end up there and the experience was amazing! Here are some pictures of my trip to Florence in 2012. It was my first time exploring this beautiful city and being part of a summer workshop at the Angel Academy of Art.

Well, this Friday I'll be travelling to the same city and going to the same academy with my buddy Donna!!

Good I took a pic of the bag I took the last time, since I haven't packed yet! That big wooden palette didn't fit in that suitcase, so I took disposable ones.

In fact, I'll be in Italy for two weeks and after that in Germany for 2 months. My husband got the opportunity to work in there and we said "YES".

This summer, I'll be blogging about this Europe adventure. I hope you'll join me (virtually)!!

Never say ‘no’ to adventures. Always say ‘yes’, otherwise you’ll lead a very dull life.
