It was an amazing experience from a family trip perspective, but it was also equally inspiring for my artist side. I used to travel quite a bit but in recent years have not been able to as much. My wanderlust is back! It was so inspiring to experience different landscapes. We went from the Phoenix desert with dry barren piles of earth they call mountains and cactus plants that didn't seem real, to Page where we kayaked, hiked and swam through the slot canyons which offered organic shapes and lines to my hearts content, to the Grand Canyon which is simply awe-inspiring, to Sedona with the red rocks, trees, canyons and rivers.
I visited a few art galleries which was also inspiring to see so many artists creating and selling. I have renewed hope in my dreams. I am excited to get going on a new series which isn't completely inspired by the trip visually but definitely effected by it. Time to get to work!
Have a great day!
