Andrea's Mole in Vietnam Round 3

Vietnam writing (Andrea's mole in Vietnam 2)Up & Down (Andrea's mole in Vietnam 1)

I never did post all the pages from Andrea's mole before sending it off to Gretchen. It is a world traveling book, since it's now in Hawaii with Gretchen. Here are the images I completed, most done during the weekend while I was in a heavenly beach resort called Phan Thiet in Vietnam. The rest were done en route to or from Vietnam.

When I asked my daughters what I should do on Mike's collab piece, they immediately said, "Worm on a hook!" Which is what I did, although there's room for further collaboration if anyone wants to join in later on:

Fish and Worm (Andrea's mole - collab with Mike)

This piece kept me awake once I landed in San Francisco after the long flight home. I exaggerated a bit about how long I'd been traveling. Door-to-door, from my hotel in Vietnam to my house in Corrales, I was in transit for about 24 hours. But believe me, sitting in the airport lounge trying to stay awake, it felt like I'd been on the road for at least 36.

I was already at least ten days late so I rushed to do this collab piece for Gretchen. Not to mention, my black pen was almost out of ink!

I'll end with this shot of Ho Chi Minh City from my hotel window:

what an interesting collection of pieces! All very fun from the Vietnam-ish ones to the final photo from Ho Chi Min City. The scaley hand is sort of creepy! LOL! I had to enlarge it!

Traveling does take a toll!

But such adventures and changes of scene!

Very cool - I like the idea of an extended collaboration with the fish piece. That'll be really cool to see what happens.

Thanks for posting the rest - and what an awesome view!

Yay! Thanks for posting these. I love the suggestion that your daughters had. I also really liked the idea that you opened it up for other people to collab on that page.

Ooooo, aaaahhh, that hand!

The hand is creepy and wild. I like the effect of the scales, so I'm using them in other pieces. As for the fish and worm, we can see if it evolves and if so, how. I also like the minimalist way it is now. I tend to fill pages, and I forget how cool it is to leave blank space.
