visiting emma

The Weegee Exhibition Centre, which houses the wonderful Espoo Museum of Modern Art, is a short ride away from Helsinki's Ruoholahti quarter, and is well worth a visit if you are an art lover— though the Weegee also is home to a toy museum, a clock and timepieces museum, and various other great places to wander around in. Like any good art museum, the EMMA left me with a hunger to draw, to paint and to sculpt, and a nagging feeling of guilt that I haven't done any such thing in a long time. I'm really not sure what is keeping me from picking up my pencils and brushes. Lately, I've preferred to take on the role of the witness, I guess.

I hope it changes soon.

I think we all go through periods of less sketching. I'm sure you'll be drawing and painting again soon.

Thanks, Sue!
As a matter of fact, I sketched a little yesterday.
