travel journals on display at Wanaka Library

Travel journals on display at Wanaka Library

For the next month I will have a number of my travel journals and urban sketches on display at the Wanaka Library. These sketchbooks and paintings are from many years of travel in New Zealand, Europe, USA and Patagonia. I will change out the paintings regularly.

Most of my sketchbooks have been sitting in a cupboard. I thought locals would be interested in seeing the hand made and commercial sketchbooks in person and to be able read some of the little stories I have written with some of the paintings.

Yesterday I had a wonderful morning sorting through my BIG pile of books choosing which paintings to display.  I have books going back to 1999, plus a couple from my childhood. It was a thoroughly positive experience to see how much I have grown in my drawing skills over the last 17 years. And many drawing were such a great trip down memory lane too. It reminded me, yet again, that it has been determination, rather than talent, that has gotten me this far. If you want something badly enough, you can make it happen!
