barcelona flaneuse

I've been to Barcelona three times and I'm ready to return!



Ta-da.  The brushes I wish I used more frequently.


Yes, I mean to draw or paint every day.  But do I?  No.


Theoretically, doing something small — like an artist’s card — should be possible.  But I tend not to.  In fact, one of the reasons I love to travel is that I somehow, when on the road, find the impulse to record the impression, the fun, much easier to do.  My Barcelona journal is evidence of this (more of it in a later post).


But what I need to do now, is have a few minutes each day that I honor what’s fun, what’s beautiful, what’s amazing, even if it’s as common as a dandelion.  I need to stay in shape for the next Barcelona expedition.

I travel, I teach, I walk, I write, I draw. I spent big chunks of my life acquiring degrees, but I've learned as much from my students as I learned from my professors. I am always ambitious to learn more.

  1. I love the freeness of your paintings. I enjoy painting!

  2. May I suggest drawing the Ten Thousand?

  3. I love your blog, Ann…and your paintings. I am a devoted follower….and you inspired me to what to do the same. I hope the next time you are Barcelona bound we can figure out a way to meet. Best wishes with your resolutions. C
