2004 was similar to the year before, but I concentrated on the East this time. I had the chance to stay at a friends' house in Lithuania in both summers, and painted. It was a perfect time. The beauty of the Nemunas river and my unspoilt surroundings - I was living alone in a scenic dream. Every few days I drove to Kaunas to keep up contact with my folks. What was once a part of the Soviet empire, had now become a part of the EU: a miracle to a lot of older people, and to me as well. It was so rewarding to be able to travel freely through these beautiful countries.
