Happy Thanksgiving

Just want to wish all my blogger friends in the U.S. a very Happy Thanksgiving.  To all my blogger friends in other friends in Canada and England a very Happy Day.  Today is a day to reflect on all our blessings.  As I write, my grand daughter Virginia is creating a bracelet on her rainbow loom. The little guy Joseph is sitting on his dads lap with his traditional Thanksgiving cold.  My husband is in his glory, with the shopping for the feast, bonding with my daughter for she also loves all the traditions from holidays past when her grandparents came to our house.  My sister in law is the life of the party, making the kids laugh and playing games.  My first born grandson is sleeping, which is unusual for he is an early riser.
For me I cherish everyday with my loved ones, and not to mention, the wonderful gift of art.  For that is what keeps me going when we can't all be together.  Happy Painting Everyone.

Oil Study

Arboretum 9x12
Saturday I stayed home and painted a scene that was started plein air.  The Bayard Cutting Arboretum is such a lovely place to paint.
On Location at the Arboretum

Although it wasn't completed I did walk away with enough of the information needed to work on a larger piece at home.
Happy Painting Everyone.
