On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Can you walk and sketch at the same time?

Mari Le Glatin Keis has written and painted a wonderful book for those of us who would like to learn to travel and sketch. I made my first attempt last August while on an Alaskan cruise and got all of two pages completed, both before we even boarded the ship! I understand now that I was doing just about everything wrong and setting myself up for failure. So I was delighted to read this book and study the examples Mari provides from her own work and that of her workshop participants. I don't expect to be traveling for several months, but when I do I hope to have some practice from following her ideas right here in my own community, something to looking forward to throughout 2008.

  1. I love the cover of the book and have noted it down on my wish list. Thanks for posting about it, Barbara. :)
