Coconuts and karsts in my sketchbook – Art from Vietnam
I wanted new pictures in my head to go with the word “Vietnam.” I knew that my mental image of the country I got from war movies was out-dated and inaccurate, so as I traveled with Lauren, I kept my eyes and sketchbook open, ready for new impressions.
Now, when I hear “Vietnam,” I’ll think of the coconuts and round fishing boats of Mui Ne, the cascading rice terraces of Sapa, the serene lake in the midst of Hanoi‘s chaos, and the dramatic islands of Halong Bay. My art below shows just part of the Vietnam I experienced.
