These are the first two pages in my sketchbook after the trip to Europe in the fall. I love these pages because of two things:
1. My joy for reconnecting with gouache!
2. These pages show me how I "come home".
These were done during busy post-trip days packed with an attempt to get back in the rhythm of things as soon as possible. I did these pages in between things, one little bit at a time. And they are depictions of the simplest things around me.
There were other sketches but after I made these I knew I returned home :)
