"Thankful Owl" 8x10 mixed media on canvas
I have to be honest, for today's painting I had no plan... I knew I wanted to use (what I consider to be) Thanksgiving colors, but other than that I decided to just let the art take me where it wanted to go. I started by creating a warm layered background and eventually an owl emerged. I decided to keep the owl fairly translucent because I liked how it was all blending together.
Tonight as I write this I feel full... Not just because I indulged in pumpkin and pecan pie, but because I feel so blessed. I am filled with gratitude for my friends and family here at home and also for the new community of friends I have found online that feel like an extended family.
For my friends that are celebrating today, I hope you and yours are enjoying a wonderful holiday filled with lots of reasons to be thankful!
