EU Timetable illustrates the first European vacation I took with a group of strangers. The trip was great but I was unprepared for the rigid schedule that accompanied the group tour. It was such a whirlwind as we jumped from activities to meals to hikes, before packing up and heading to a new town to start all over again.
My painting incorporates the cobblestone streets and the gold-domed churches of Italy that I loved. Over that is layered the clock gears (made from the maps from my trip) and horizontal stripes that represent the hectic timetable of the trip.
