Art in the home
Trying to imagine of where one calls a home, we realize that there are lots of art in it. Imagine of the beautiful paintings on the wall, photograph or even print placed on the wall. That is all art. As if that is not enough, try looking around your home well, that decorated towel, delightfully patterned quilt on the bed, angle poised desk lamp, even the cute pink covered teapot all form part of art (Norris, par 2).
