My husband and I went to San Diego with friends this weekend and I brought my paints along. I find it is possible to get a little painting in when the size is small. My hope is to just whip one out, but it never is quiet so simple. So with the pear my husband brought up to the room, a glass of water and a little time here and there I managed to paint 2 small paintings of the same subject. I will post the next one tomorrow.
