Hard to believe that it is only a week until I leave — the time has flown! It is another cloudy, cool morning — there are a lot of those during this season in Chile. I bundle up in turtle neck and puffy vest and feel like an idiot by noon when it is hot and sunny — adjustable layers are what is needed.I continue to gather visual notes via the camera and sketch and paint. More people are showing up for creative break workshops and enjoying the process. Most people are interested in sumi-e and sho-do but there are also texture mappers and a team of five who want to try the 360 degree landscape exercise. We are anticipating having an exhibition from next Monday to Wednesday (Dec. 1-3/14) of my work in progress as well as some of the work from people who participated in creative breaks.
