Making Art While Traveling

It's not always easy to see what might come from my playing and painting when I'm away from my studio for extended times like when we travel.

My mobile studio this winter in India was a sheet of plywood propped against the wall, and I sat on the floor in front and painted. I worked on paper, often so many layers of paint that the paper began to feel almost like canvas.  I generally worked fairly quickly since the acrylic paint would dry out very fast.

Some of these images have clues and ideas, bits and pieces that work and are already inspiring me. The inspiration is often indirect and not totally obvious, however this time around I think I can see now, after 2 months at home, what is sticking around for more exploration.
