Summer in Europe Watercolor Collections

I always keep a journal.
Especially when travelling!

A few drawings. Stories. Wine labels. 

Afterwards, a collage. 
A colorful collection of memories.

I love collages: A whole experience and several episodes - on one easy page.

"If your arteries are good, eat more ice cream.
 If they are bad, drink more red wine. 

Proceed thusly."
