We are home now. It was sad to leave St. Simons Island, but after five weeks away, it feels good to be back. This is my last painting done in Georgia (on Jekyll Island), but definitely not my last painting of the coastland imagery. I will be revisiting the colors and forms of the beaches and marshlands for a good while to come. As my "painting sabbatical" ends, I feel great satisfaction... both expectant and excited about where this work will lead me next. Having devoted painting time like this is a rare and wonderful opportunity and I enjoyed every minute! Thanks for your many wonderful comments of encouragement and for sharing the journey with me!
