It was so good to get home  yesterday, but the transition process is a mixed bag of emotions for me. Saying goodbye to friends from the workshop… being excited  to try new techniques in the quiet solitude of my own studio…  trying to catch up on paperwork and laundry…remembering it was trash day… planning meals for just 2 of us again…  All day I puttered from thing to thing, accompanied by the oddest feelings. Though I did not get into the studio,  I accomplished more than I thought I would, while carrying around an empty feeling in the pit of my stomach that seemed to be a combination of melancholy and excitement.

If I could paint  what this re-entry feels like, it would look like this view from the ferry around 5 p.m. yesterday, looking back at Great Cranberry Island as I headed home to Islesford.
