Pieces of Autumn
Watercolor in Handmade Journal
7 x 7 inches
Pausing just a few minutes as we get ready for Thanksgiving (here in America) to post an old sketchbook page that shows some of my very favorite "pieces of Autumn."

I've been sharing over on Facebook some of the things I am most grateful for and I'm posting just a quick list that is by no means exhaustive but is from the heart:

My sweet husband
The (nearly) 21 years we've been married
Our home
The loving, furry critters that make our house a home
The love that fills our days
Food, heating, cooling and roofs that don't leak
Family close by
Friends, scattered near and far
Cars that run
Gas to make them go
Birdsong
The wind singing in the trees
Colorful leaves
Time to sketch and paint
Work that feeds me on so many, many levels
For all the wonderful artists that have passed through the ImaginaryTrips.com eclasses

And you, dear readers! Thanks for stopping by to see what's up, to share your thoughts, encouragement and inspiration.

Whether you're sitting down to a big meal with family to observe the holiday or just going out your daily round, I wish you happiness, love, and joy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. Happy Thanksgiving! We had our kids come for dinner although our daughter was quite late since they had to wait for their daughter to be discharged from the hospital after jaw surgery on Wednesday.

    Your painted items look great. I especially love the curled over leaf!

    1. Oh, that sounds like a full house! Hope all is well after the surgery (which doesn't seem like a good idea at Thanksgiving—she won't be able to eat!).
