As I spend more time here, in Europe, I am more understanding of why so many have been influenced by landscapes. The rolling hills, the contrasts between old buildings and new buildings, cities and countrysides; these things spark the brain into viewing differently and much more simply.
In the states, we have these things too, but the commercialization of the people and land make everything much more one dimensional. Not to say there aren’t many beautiful sights in America, it’s just much more different and widely spaced apart – you must look for it, rather then be presented at every turn.
In the little free time that I have, I try to spend it drawing/sketching. I want to collect as many memories as I can to document this extraordinary experience I am having.
