I went to Taichung. Carolyn Zick went to Akureyri. Alesh went to Prague. Andrew Binder went to Luxor. Are artists more peripatetic than most folks? Peter Steinhart thinks so, noting that Raphael, when asked to register with the guild as to where he might be found, listed a dozen cities between Umbria, Tuscany, Le Marche, and Lazio. Now, we have airplanes, and the whole earth beckons.

If only the price of fuel would plummet.
It is essential for Artists to travel in order to view things from a new perspective. Often just looking out the airbus window is enough to help one to objectively see a 'bigger picture'. Traveling across the Alps to Rome brought upon a Romantic view of the Sublimity of nature, over the man made antiquities that these Europeans sought to study from.
How can we experience such profundity today. Perhapes the exciting fear of being airborne is a clue in itself.

Right, right! I lost track of the days. How did that go?

Necee, drive safe. I read your article on the way over here and grabbed a copy. Nice work. They layed it out beautifully too - that's going to be a handsome clip.
