Going Back to My Roots

I know it's gotta go like this, I know 
Hell will always come before you grow 
Trouble found me, trouble found me 

 I'm going back to my roots 
Another day, another door 
Another high, another low 
Rock bottom, rock bottom, rock bottom 
I'm going back to my roots.

Roots by Imagine Dragons

I truly will be going back to my roots this weekend...I am headed south to Lynchburg to visit my mother. I am very much looking forward to seeing and spending time with her. I haven't seen her in quite a while. We will be spending an early Thanksgiving together since she didn't want to travel here to Maryland for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. So, I will go to her for an early Thanksgiving and she will come to us for Christmas.  

Homeschooling is going really well. The kids and I have adjusted well and have settled into a beautiful routine. I couldn't be happier with their progress and I get to spend tons of quality time with them. I do miss having an occasional day to myself, but 95% of the time it is tons of fun. I have my first homeschool review on December 3 and I am looking forward to it. I have all my ducks in a row and I am already organized and prepared to show the twins' progress.

A quick reminder that even though I will be out of town and can't be there myself, a new show reception is happening tomorrow, Friday, November 20 from 7-9PM at Arts By the Bay Gallery in Havre de Grace, MD.  I have 5 pieces showing...4 digital art and 1 photography piece. There are over 40 artists showing work there and you simply must stop in to see all the wonderful local art. Start your holiday shopping early! If you'd like to stop in while I am there, I will be working Sunday, the 29th at noon.   Stop in and see me and we can chat about my pieces!  One of the pieces showing, Say Geronimo, is one of the artworks featured in the winter issue of Artful Blogging!  Stop in and I can show you the framed original and the magazine article as well. 

This digital mixed media piece is a compilation of 4 different photographs, 4 different textures, two different digital stamps, and many adjustment layers. I created this piece in my mind when I first heard the song Roots by Imagine Dragons. It is one of my favorite songs now and I couldn't wait to make my vision come alive on the screen. I hope you enjoy it. 

Have a wonderful evening and I will see you soon...
