Defining a Word Through Fine Art

I'm using this blog post to bring attention to the fine art world on Etsy by choosing one word and posting how different artists present it through their work.
I guess I'm feeling cliché this week. You know when you're out all day either doing something you love or being somewhere you need to be, and when the day is over all you want is to go home. It means something different to all of us (well duh), but we all want to be there. It seems to mean more now, I think, during these down economic times. For me, lots of times, there is no place I'd rather be than on my couch with my cat heating up my legs, relaxing with my family around me and watching some inane TV show. It's safe, it's mine, it is my utopia. Everyone I love is in my home; my husband, my daughter and my cat. It is decorated with old family antiques and pieces my father has made. More recently it's the place where I create my artwork (even if it is a big mess-I do not like that part).
Here are a few "home" quotes I found:
Home is the most popular, and will be the most enduring of all earthly establishments.
Channing Pollock
A comfortable house is a great source of happiness. It ranks immediately after health and a good conscience.
Sydney Smith
Home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit ever answered to, in the strongest conjuration.
Charles Dickens
A good home must be made, not bought.
Joyce Maynard
The most important work you and I will ever do will be within the walls of our own homes.
Harold B. Lee
Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
