Vacay Time!!!

And so it begins. 

The boys are back in town and I will not be working the rest of the year. Yeah!

Work has been extremely busy and stressful so I am looking forward to this break. I'll be doing things I LOVE. Such as hang out with the family, cook, eat, catch up with friends and paint.

Yesterday I got my first oil paints. I can't wait to experiment with them. I've never ever used oil paints. How strange is that?

I remember when I was growing up, I had asked my mother for some paints. And she was appalled. They were way too expensive! We simply could not afford it. Plus she wanted me to focus on my education and music.  I don't want you to think that my Mom was mean. She was awesome.  But the culture I came from... you had to have a solid education. Number 1 become a doctor. Number 2 an engineer. That is it. LOL. Obviously I did not become either one of them:)

So today I am glad that I can afford to buy my own paint and just paint. Let go of all the structure. Don't care for the outcome. Just create something.

What about you? What are your plans?
