NEWS FLASH: Bowersocks are home and glad about it!

The Bowersocks just returned from a month-long vacation. Now, don't get the wrong idea. Part of it was visiting family, but I must say that Bruce has a really wonderfufamily. Reconnecting after 3 years was a good thing. Lil surprised Bruce with a 2-night stop at National Harbor, a new WyndhamVacationResorts property right across the river from Historic Alexandria, Va. Spending two whole 7 hour days in the National Gallery of Art was nothing but fabulous. Bruce was like a little kid as he tried to suck in all the wonderful and precious paintings and sculptures on display.

We were both inspired at this point, but another treat was on the way. We sketched, biked, walked, photographed and just basked in the glory of nature spread out by God for all to see and enjoy.

While we were on our trip, we had a wonderful to talk to our two friends with doctorates and brainstorm about new ways to make this art business work. So now we are on a wild ride to writing a book....Bruce's book. More about this as it progresses.


  1. Lil here... wanted to say that I left out the part about Edisto Beach, SC. That is where we spent a week consumed by art and just relaxing. Edisto is a flashback to the 50's since it is an untouched place with almost no commercialization. Wyndham Vacastion Resorts had a spot for us surrounded by spanish moss and palms and loads of lakes. Going back soon.

  2. Photos are lovely, and We are all happy to have you back. Can't wait to see the art you two will create!
