Here is my submission for "Creative Tuesdays." and the challenge of "Home is Where the Heart Is!" I've been working on an illustration all about home/places/both my homes. I've made different version of it. so I am submitting the version of it for this challenge that is in color, and includes hearts. Some are suspended, and some are attached to things, as per the specifications of this challenge.
I am originally from New York (suburbs of NYC, although I far prefer the city), live in California, and go back and forth frequently. So, I have two homes, two places, two sets of people. Home is where the heart is, and mine is split between each side of the country, so this challenge feels especially apt for me right now. If home is where the heart is, sometimes it feels like I have several homes, and at other times no homes. I guess with difficult goings on in life, and with house issues and repairs, it can make the idea of home seem lonely. But I know I am lucky and do not mean to whine. A lot is happening in my mind too, so, guess my blog is reflecting my wandering thoughts.
I am working on a grown up coloring book, so, another version of my cities/homes and heart piece is below. I colored it with my new Winsor and Newton pigment markers, which I love, but liked the black and white version as well.
Anyway, you have time to sign up, until Tuesday January 19th! Go to the most recent entry at Mister Toast's blog at www.creativetuesdays.blogspot.co.uk to enter your image at the link (-:
Hope you are all well, Happy New Year, and may your Homes and Hearts be Happy!
