I wanted to post a picture of the most unusual (for me) place that I’ve made art. Now I’ve found the picture!

It’s me working in my art journal in a open air salon just outside our bed room inside the tent. I sat there listening to the wind whispering in the trees that were shading me from the hot sun.

Camping in Ardeche

This was in 2005. In Ardeche, France. I truly loved this camping ground. It felt like a home away from home, and I hope I can go back someday. Ardeche is beautiful!

Because we had the big car-buss I could bring a whole plastic “art box” filled with paint, magazines and pens. You can see it in the picture above. It made me calm to know I had it with me. I collected maps and brochuresart everywhere and glued them into my spiral bound art journal that summer. I also made a lot of amigurumi in the car when we were on the road.

Where is the most unusual place you’ve made art? Let me and Susan (who was the one who gave me this idea) know!

Oh, and here is another beautiful picture from Ardeche:

C’est la vie, huh? I haven’t been to a real holiday since summer 2005… I hope I can go somewhere next summer. *crossing my fingers*
