Road Trip to Arizona

Next week we will be leaving from Vancouver Island to travel down the west coast of Washington, Oregon and California.  This is a long road trip (about 2500 km) with two dogs but it will be well worth it as the scenery is supposed to be awesome!  Then, we head across to Arizona where we have rented a house for three weeks.  After a long and tiresome winter in Alberta we have been in BC for two weeks enjoying the cherry blossoms.  Finally having a shot of Color is like candy for the eyes.  Now, we are heading south for some intense heat in Arizona.  I think it will be a welcome change.

My biggest problem is trying to decide what art supplies to take.  I am on holiday but the thought of not having the right supplies, sends me into a panic attack.   I am more worried about that than what clothes to take.  Should I take an art journal? -  that means taking acrylic paints, watercolours or gouache (which I currently love BTW).  Not sure I want to commit to an art journal....?  Do I take a sketchbook with drawing and shading pencils for faces?  Then, I wonder if I should take a doodle or zentangle journal and all kinds of microns and markers?  So many decisions and I have never been good with decisions.

Does anyone have any ideas for how to pack a small case with essentials for travel?  If so, I would like to know.  Please leave a comment with your suggestions so it will make my decisions easier.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Now go back to splashing Color, OK?
