Return to Virginia / by Anita Amrhein

After eight years on the West Coast plus a two-year sabbatical to move across the country and build a new home in Virginia, my husband and I are delighted to be again near our daughter and son-in-law in the State that had been home since 1964.  I still miss the beautiful views of the water, the islands and the Olympic Mountains from my studio on Camano Island.  But the view of the Blue Ridge and Old Rag Mountain from my new studio is an exciting replacement.
