Our time in New Orleans —as always—went by too fast. We spent the mornings feeding ducks and afternoons working. We did take breaks to visit with friends, sit on the porch and ride our bikes. In the end I finished up about 10 paintings with 6 more in the works.

Now it's time to pack up the airstream and head west. I am excited to hit the road, yet don't want to leave New Orleans. That's the problem with me: I want to be everywhere all the time.
