Hello from Korea! I have been here for exactly one month, and look forward to being here until the end of November. For my first month, I stayed is a small country town called Mugeuk (무극) in Chungcheongbuk-do Province. I chose that area because a friend who is teaching English there had invited me to stay with her. Little did I know that the four paintings I would complete over the course of my time there would all be of local scenes and people. I thought I would do a lot of traveling around the country, but I found plenty to occupy me close to home.
