Georgia on my mind

There's something special about the South. I'm not sure if it's the grandeur of these old homes, the vast greenery and manicured lawns and gardens, or the sense of history that hangs in the air like the scent of magnolias.

What I'm especially enjoying here are the splendid works by local artists and artisans - inspirational to the nth degree!

No not yet

My creativity has suddenly been interrupted by an impromptu visit to Atlanta, GA. I see a pattern emerging here ... soon be in the studio ... no not yet ... soon be working away in the studio ... no not yet ... I'm really going to get going in that darned studio ... no not yet ...

Back in a week and I really am planning to get busy in that studio!

Time to face the paint

OK, my travelling days are over for awhile, so now it's time to hit the studio and face the paint and canvas. Seems a bit daunting after a couple months break. My head is filled with images and ideas and now I have to focus on only a couple - how to choose?! Wish me luck and wisdom!

Last photos from the journey

We arrived in New York just before dawn - lovely views to bring our fabulous adventure to an end.

OK, I admit it, I'm having a difficult time getting back to the reality of being off the ship. No more chocolates on my pillow at night, no more cleverly assembled towel animals surprising me in me cabin after dinner, and ... sigh ... no more round the clock desserts. Now there's only cat hair on my pillow, towels lying in unrecognizable heaps on the floor, and as for desserts ... what desserts? Did you say something? ... Did I hear you say "spoilt brat"? OK, that I also admit to. Thanks UD&AF for the trip of a lifetime!
