JOURNEY - Watercoloring in the car -

April's theme at Artists In Blogland is JOURNEY and my little watercolored bird is not only on his own personal journey but he was painted while we were literally on a journey - to Florida.  It is easier to paint in the car than I had ever imagined - I tried it back in December and I doubt that I will ever travel again without a few art supplies.  Makes a long car journey fly by. . .
While on vacation we enjoyed the ocean . . .
a trip to Disney World (we stayed until after midnight and didn't make it back to the house until past 1:30 AM - Caleb LOVED Space Mountain and Stella LOVED meeting princesses), visited Grandma Helen, played with our niece and nephew visiting from Seattle and spent lots of time
in the pool at Papa and Oma's house!  So much time was spent in water that Caleb has been battling Swimmer's Ear - thankfully it seems to be on the mend!
It is a treat to ride with us because you can choose from three genres for your listening pleasure:  Adele (me), Weird Al (the boys) and assorted baseball/sports games (Corey).  Diversity is good, right?  It is a good thing that I can distract myself with sketching since Weird Al and baseball/sports games make me crazy!  Linking to Art Journal Every Day - Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.

I love your bird painting! If I tried to paint in the car I can just imagine the mess I'd make!

Gorgeous!!! There is no way I could do that in the car...I mean for reals....I would make a mess for one, but it certainly wouldn't look this good!

Glad you had a wonderful time! Disney is magical no matte how old you are! :-))))
