First Things First
OK, I am getting my priorities right here, got my ticket to fly, brought and paid for, got a passport, up to date with an unsmiling, recognisable photo. Now, the most important thing is to sort out what I am taking. I am talking art materials here, not books or even clothes but paint, paper, drawing implements, brushes, boards etc.
What I plan to do is work out how many paintings I can do in a day, how many days I am staying in Provence, add a few more for good luck, gather it all together then weigh it.
Then clothes will take up the spare space, or not. I could always wear a lot of my clothes, all at once for the flight! Luckily Katherine has offered to take my oil paints with her as she is driving down and air planes don't like to take oil paints. So I have a few colours arriving in the next day or two and then they will head off for the big city from Cornwall in a lovely parcel.
I am getting very excited, and the countdown thing on the side of this blog is making it worse...only 17 days to go!!
