it was raining outside but my love still shined

Hello folks. Once again, I am apologising for the lack of recent activity on my blog. I'm not blaming my drawing funk this time, but I do have a good excuse. I have been in France exhibiting my work at the wonderful Rendez-Vous du Carnet de Voyage exhibition. A big HELLO to all the lovely people I met there and a big THANKS for showing such an overwhelming interest in my work. There is nothing better than being able to share my sketchbooks with people 'in the flesh', so to speak. Nothing.

Anyway, more on that shortly. I need to unpack and catch up with my mail and all that stuff that goes on when you are in another world and another country. For now, here's a drawing I made on the plane back home.

Wow, that's a wonderful piece. I love the handwriting, it complements the drawing very nicely.

I guess you're now an official member of the Mile High (sketching) Club, well done : )

Thanks so much, folks. This is one of those drawings that I would never have dreamt would have such a great response from the various places I posted it. I always think of this little blog as home though.

Hello Andrea. I saw you this sunday at Clermont Ferrand. I like a lot what you draw. I show to my children and they like it to. Sorry for my english. It's not very well. Are you happy for your travel in France ?

andrea joseph's sketchblog said...

Merci, Celine. Your English is better than my French!

Yes, I loved my time in Clermont. I hope to return in the future. Thanks again.

It really was a pleasure to meet you in Clermont. I hope you enjoyed it, although being alone was not easy. The picture I took of you is in my blog. Maybe we'll meet again next year ?
