Thanksgiving 2011

We are relaxing a little after our Thanksgiving cooking marathon - this year for 22 adults and 5 children (ages 2-8).  We cooked at our apartment on Tuesday, and then transported the food across Central Park to our daughter's.  We cooked at her apt. on Wednesday and Thursday - and then had a fabulous mix of family and friends for approximately 6-7 hours.  I struggle to complete journal/sketchbook pages during these days, but did two that were Holiday-related.

A Turkey - from a photo.


My champagne glass, bottle, and cookbook - from the event.


I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday.  My husband and I are always happy to host the event, but equally happy to rest up when it is over!


I love the purple hues in the turkey. Sounds like you had a wonderful day, surrounded by family.

Beautiful drawings! Love that turkey. Sounds like you had a wonderful gathering and a nice dinner. I wish that someday we'd be able to do the same. We tend to always miss out on thanksgiving family reunions due to work and seasonal change sickness

Lovely festive work! I like the fresh delicate coloring in all your sketches, not just in this post.

Not only are the painting terrific, but it's the thought that you do take time to pause and draw as though Every Day does Matter!

wow! would love to see the menu! sounds
like the proverbial norman rockwell scene.
and i love that you drew only the essentials.

I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful time with your friends and family, and also glad that you shared a wee bit of it with us in your drawings! nancy
