A Very Thankful Day

It was a warm and wonderful day ...inside. The weather outside, on the other hand, went from sunny and cool to cloudy and very cold, ending up with 45 mph winds and flurries last night. I did get some work done in the studio, but kept running into the cottage to get a whiff of the delicious aromas cooking on the stove. Yum!

The aromas of Thanksgiving are some of the best. It was very hard to concentrate on painting with all those goodies cooking away in the kitchen!

It is a cold and windy today on Black Friday! (I hate that name). Barbara and I are having a late breakfast and desperately trying to keep warm, but definitely not huddled outside some store waiting to snatch up an “I-got-to-have” thing-a-ma-jig.

I hope all those die hard shoppers got what they wanted this morning. Some folks were out there at four a.m. this morning after waiting 12 hours for the stores to open. Now that is really NUTS if you don't mind me saying!

Though turkey took front row on Thursday, but I did get a little work done on the Old Stone House. Here is a peek:

I'm beginning to color in the trees.

The house is starting to take shape but still needs more work!




  1. The "Old Stone House" is a perfect Thanksgiving setting, I am enjoying its progress. A.J.

  2. I found you via the lovely A.J. Johnson above. I am happy I followed her here...

    I think this is a wonderful painting! So charming and detailed and the colours are so inviting.

    Thank you for this visit~
