Gushing about Gauguin!
Oh yeah, she has the pre-travel jitters! I don't know about you, but I'm pretty much of a stress mess the days leading up to a long vacation. I'm not one who loves plane travel that's for sure...but more than that, it's leaving the comfort and loves of home and (DOG)...to venture out to places unknown. I always love it once we arrive at our destination...it's just the "before" and the "getting there" that kinda sucks!
One of the many reasons I'm excited to be going to Tahiti is because of Paul Gauguin...another one of my favorite Artists. Gauguin lived and painted in Tahiti during the last years of his life and produced some of his most beautiful works. I love the way he used bold color and primitive design to depict life on the Islands. He was truly a master and ahead of his time and I hope to see lots of his influence there.
Hope to be back here once more before we leave Wednesday afternoon.
Have a good Monday everyone!
