Happy Pioneer Day

Pioneer Day is a celebration of Utah's pioneer heritage and the commemorating the day the first company of pioneers entered the valley. The story of the pioneers is amazing.  I love this print by Minerva Teichert. It's called Zion, Ho.  It shows a woman turning back to the rest of her party to exclaim her excitement at seeing the valley for the first time. 

I like the idea that we are all pioneers in one way or another. Each of us traveling along our own life journey.

Minerva Teichert is a favorite artist of mine. She balanced motherhood and her art. Feeling that both were her divine calling.  I love that.
