“Your Home Town” Art Challenge

Where in the World Do You Live?
the city or town where one grew up, 
the place of one's principal residence
(not to be confused with birthplace
although the two can be the same place).

What sort of place is your home town?
How would you show it with art?

We see so many of you every week and usually know the 
part of the world you live in, but we'd love you to 
share with us, more specifically, your town!

You may live in an apartment in the city . . .

reside in a peaceful country setting . . .

. . . . or live somewhere in between.

Wherever it is, I hope it's a place you love!
Although it's not always the case . . . sometimes people 
can't wait to leave their home town and make
a new home somewhere else.

This looks like a fun place to visit . . .

Is there a special event, landmark, or celebration in your town?
New Orleans

Maybe you're surrounded by highways and concrete.
This painting captures the beauty 
of these cold, industrial forms.

Is your home town landlocked or situated near water?
Maybe your town fills with tourists for part of the year.

I love a sense of history in the structures of a town.

oil on canvas, Laing Art Gallery

Apartment, townhouse, castle, treehouse, teepee, cabin!
Whether it's in a large city or small town . . . 
we hope you will show us with your art just 
what makes it special to you!

Have fun depicting your town in whatever medium you choose.
Link up here by Sunday, March 24. Link back to
Inspiration Avenue in your blog post.

Have a creative and inspiring week!

It's a pleasure to share my home! I collaged some of my favorite photos from my collection and added a bamboo texture on top to give the piece some softness and a vintage look.
A great challenge this week....loved it!

We might not have world museums and high dollar shopping, but we do have beautiful landscapes in Del Rio. Blessings!

Maggie, you've done a wonderful job on the hometown challenge. What fun it was to visit people's blogs and learn about their hometowns. I've posted a couple of scrapbook-type pages to show part of my home. It was lots of fun making them.
