Home Is... and Art Giveaway Reminder

It feels great to be back home... We had a great trip visiting family and friends and spending some time in the desert. 
Here are just a few shots from the trip...

We had lunch under this rock overhang in Moab, Utah.

A beautiful arch that is on an old settlers trail in Eagle Canyon, Utah.

A funky little alien-themed jerky shop in Baker, California.
Rock art at a spot on the trail called Head of Sinbad/Locomotive Point. Love this ancient artwork...
 I have realized over the years that as much as I love getting away, seeing new places and traveling, I really love being at home. Over the years my hubby and I have daydreamed about selling it all, taking a year or so, loading up the camper and traveling around the country.  A part of me finds this really enticing... I mean, would be pretty great... I would be with my best friend and doggies, on an extended vacation, learning about this country and myself, seeing beautiful sights, trying new food... Besides, I have often heard that home is really what we make of it wherever we are or who we are around and while I agree to some extent, I have come to understand that I do really like having a home base. I guess I am a nester. What about you? What is your definition of home? What does it mean to you?



I missed making art, being in my studio and around all of my supplies. I did take a small travel pack of art materials and played a bit. But once we unpacked the camper and tended to the post-trip necessities I headed straight for my work space. Ahhh... it was like taking a deep breath of fresh air. I was pretty tired so I only worked for about an hour before bed but here are a few pieces I started to play with... as always, I look forward to seeing how they turn out.


And don't forget...Fabulous Friday Giveaway Reminder... I will post an artwork (not pictured yet) this Friday November 16th. If you are interested in possibly receiving the piece please leave a comment on that day's post. Entries will be open until November 22nd at midnight. I will announce the lucky recipient on Friday November 23rd.
