My best holiday souvenirs are things we find in nature.
When I am on holidays I most often bring back something I pick up from the ground. I will find a beautiful flower or I will pick up shells. In a metropolitan city, I will look for a stone. When I think about it I have no idea when or why I started doing this. Probably from childhood when you have ideas like a clover or a stone can bring you luck.
Anyway, here is an idea I have been doing in my sketchbook for some time now. I find my souvenirs for inspiration for drawings. The nice thing about it is that I start to remember things. Photos can’t compete with these treasures that I have collected from all over the world. I remember different things liken the smell, temperature humidity what I was thinking about at the time, and so on. Sometimes treasures like this are given to me by a friend. It is such a lovely gift and to me the are the very best souvenirs.
