2016 wasn’t exactly the best year ever, but I did manage to take my traveling watercolor set to Nicaragua, Paris, and Tierra del Fuego. So there’s that.
The year started out in Nicaragua, where I was on an assignment for Lonely Planet:
Next up was California.
Then it was back to Philadelphia.
And then to a flooded Paris.
Then back to Argentina, of course.
(Did you know that Tierra del Fuego is one of the most beautiful places in the world? It is. I love Uruguay, too. Also: I love this cheerful yellow table.)
I also experimented with other media this year.
And got the kids involved.
I made a map for my grandmother. And I painted in my notebook.
Sometimes I forgot my watercolors.
But I always had them with me in the most colorful places.
Farewell, 2016. You were a beast. But there were good times, too. Here’s to more adventures – more water, always, and more color – in the year ahead.
