while flying...

Hard to believe my last post was from Hawaii... I didn't mean to be absent from this blog for that long, but holidays, family visiting extravaganza(!!!), decorating the house and then redecorating it again, finally getting back to work with a vengeance, and here we are in mid January... how can time go by so very fast?!?!?!?

Well, Hawaii was exactly what I expected it to be: fantastic!!! Of course being in the company of some very loved ones it's always a guarantee for memorable times. The sunsets, the flora, the lit torches everywhere in the cool crisp night air, the waterfalls and densely green hills of Maui, the sounds, the light, the ever changing blue in the water and sky...

And then the looong flight back home made so much more bearable having my iPad at hand. I tend to read a lot while traveling, but I also take breaks using it as a magical sketch pad. I say magical because drawing with the tip of my finger gives a totally different result and feel from my usual sketching mode...

Here is a quick drawing executed at around 40,000 feet above the Pacific...

  6. Barry, what can I say? I am addicted working/doing things with my hands! The iPad offers such multi faceted environment, transforming the most inconvenient small space (airplane economy seat) into a vast arty environment! I truly love it!
