It was a first for me on many levels. I am no artist; in fact I was getting acquainted for the first time with the different graphite pencils the previous night. Thanks to my artist sister, Milly. Also younger sister, Dechen Yee, who has dabbled in art in the past. The three of us along with niece Justine Crawford, who is visiting from B.C., enjoyed the plein air immensely!
My main interests are actually travel, photography (with a point-and-shoot camera, now mostly with my cellphone), nature walks, reading, gardening and writing poetry. In fact, I recently self-published a short collection (chapbook) of poetry on Kindle/Amazon titled 'When the Heart Sings'. The plein air experience was totally new and enjoyable, and I have already penned a few lines about it for my next poetry book!
I also like classical music and playing the piano. Currently practising Schubert's Serenade. I have uploaded some of my piano pieces with my nature videos and photos on YouTube.
