The worst and the best you saw in yesterday's post. Here are the rest. It turned out there were not nine drawings, but eleven. I'd say that's pretty good for a fourteen day holiday that included two travel days plus one day where we switched hotels, (we like variety in our lives). All could have been entered in the TWC. They were done quickly, with no preliminary drawing, just paint to paper in plein aire, spontaneously. The only way to paint in my opinion.
What I find interesting about the drawings is the emotional range. Some days calm, others not so. Probably had to do with the unstable weather conditions common in Cancun and other points South this time of year, (that's why there are such good air/hotel deals). It was mostly sunny, but it also rained, but never for long and never where you had to run indoors. It was always windy, but only one day and night of gale forces strong enough where I wondered if Mother Nature knew the hurricane season was past. The temps outside were the expected eighties. Inside, they were the expected bring-a-jacket, preferably one with some warmth. Hotels like to keep their uniformed service people cool while they work and their guests freezing their asses off in their tropical tanks and shorts. Go figure.
With our holiday a memory, we're off to the bakery for some delectable looking goodies for the ersatz Christmas party tomorrow night, Christmas Eve and the fourth night of Hanukkah. Have a Merry everybody. Soak in the warmth of the season and let it fill your hearts with joy and compassion. It's not too late to put a twenty in the kettle and spread the cheer.
