I find that I am researching old shields to see the shapes and designs as well as various artifacts from archeological digs to get ideas for the bronze. I think I'm addicted to the stuff. Now if I can just figure out how to take the clay and kiln to Paris with me I will be happy.
We all know that isn't going to happen...but I will have a new focus when I walk through the museums. I'm driving Lou crazy because I keep talking about the things that I want to search out in the museums. He finally had to tell me that this trip isn't all about me and my jewelry design. Silly boy.....of course it is. He knows that I am going to drag him to museums and flea markets all in search of ideas. And in between we will do the things that he wants to do....a boat trip on the Seine at night, a visit to Le Crazy Horse, some jazz bars and wine bars. Liquor him up, show him a topless girl and I can drag him just about anywhere :))) If I could line up a golf game for him he would be in hog heaven.
I don't know if I will be blogging while I'm gone. I hope so. If the computer in the apartment doesn't work, there is suppose to be an internet cafe fairly close so I am going to try to blog a bit and maybe get some pics up. If not.... I will talk to you all on the 19th.
