Connecticut artist Skye Sutherland and her 85-pound rescue dog, Zackary, are planning an extended cross-country road trip this year.
“I paint camping pets’ portraits, and teach art workshops to adults and children,” says Skye. During January 2012, she will be teaching classes in Palm Springs, Calif.
“Growing up, we camped in tents, trailers, and motor homes,” recalls Skye. “As an adult, I camped mainly in tents and cabins. So owning my own RV, and learning how to tow it and all that comes with it, is interesting. I’m still learning.”
Later this year, after several months living and traveling in New England, Skye and Zack will be heading west in her 2001 Dodge Durango RT, pulling a 2008 21-ft. Flagstaff Micro Lite travel trailer.
