5 years ago this month I began writing this blog.
 Over 5 hundred paintings later
I am thinking...
What better way to celebrate the number 5
 than to plan a painting trip to a country
that is known for its 5-star 
food, lodging, and scenery;
a country that eloquently celebrates the 5 senses
 in all-things-art;
and one that 
says it all
in only 5 letters?

~ I t a l y ~

And perhaps painting 5 cities along the coast
 could be 5 times the fun, if only (panic!) I knew what to pack.
How about 5 colors that mix to make all the rest?
Red, yellow, blue, black and white should do!
But the biggest question of all... how
How to efficiently, simply, concisely pack only the lightest-weight basics? 
Well that, my friends, is the art and science of travel.
Next post I will share the results of my ongoing research into this subject -
and offer 5 travel tips that you can use whether painting in your neighborhood or one far away,
~ high 5's all around!~

"Whenever you go somewhere
 that speaks to your soul, 
you are going home to yourself."
