Not only will I be working on the above beer cans, but I'll also be painting with oils and watercolors (and maybe some oil pastel as well), and drawing with charcoal. Some of you will receive some of these treats when I'm done.
I've been to Lisboa once before, for eight hours on a layover to Sevilla. The airport is very close to the city, so if you ever find yourself with a long layover then I highly recommend it. This time, however, I won't be seeing just the tourist sites (btw - walking from the Arch to the Mariner's Memorial IS NOT as easy as the tourist map suggests). Instead, I'll be diving in to the local arts scene, visiting galleries, attending openings, and networking across the board, not to mention practicing my Portuguese. I look forward to bringing you along for this journey, so check back about once per week starting in January (don't worry, I'll remind you), and let's see how this goes.
