Well, I feel like I am back and yet not quite. I find that I am not one of those people who can just pick up where they left off after a vacation or - as in this case - having a friend visit for a while. I seem to go through a time of transition for a while and there's always a slight feeling of discomfort that comes with it.

I hadn't been in my studio for about a month and tonight I decided to finally get out my paints again. I didn't know where to start, but I figured I had to do just that - start!

So I took a small canvas board and just started doodling with paints. I mixed colors that were pleasing to my eye and just painted from my intuition. Which was harder to do than I thought. I kept wondering if the resulting painting would be "good." The break seems to have made me a little insecure.

But ... I started and that's good. And tomorrow I'll paint some more.

And I'll go through my photos and tell you all about the movie we watched being filmed in Savannah recently. It was actually quite exciting! Stay tuned...

And thank you all for welcoming me back so warmly after my blog break! It sure feels great to be connected again!
