This year we had Thanksgiving at home with a pal. Here's Ron cutting the turkey...this one was twice the size of my birthday turkey! :) And we had watched an old movie earlier in the week. There was a little prayer in it, so I said this: "Earth that gave us all this food. Sun that ripened it so good. Earth & Sun, Thank you for what you've done!" (Ya might also notice I don't like things to match! I've collected handmade pottery over the years, so there's always a variety of color at our table!) We are blessed and grateful!

Even as the rune for the month predicted blessings & direction, I've been "moved" to return to my roots of art. Way back to the dreams of my childhood...drawing, painting...BEING an artist. I've left some of my techniques by the wayside in order to either make a living or be involved in a project. Some had to do with me, some didn't. But now is the time.
So I'm starting by getting back to my art journals, sketching, watercolor painting, color pencil paintings, etc. There are things I want to capture! Ideas to express that have been moodling in me. Now is the time.
You may be seeing more of this in the future. And hopefully bigger & better works of my heart art!
In this small spread, I started with a sketch of my travelling watercolor kit as a return to my roots. And on the next page, my happiness in the election outcome as an expression of my current joy. I hope to show the energy I see everywhere...in everything. Wow. Big dreams! :) Wish me well!

Here's Ron out stirring up another stinky batch of paper! He says, "It smells like money!" Ha! I'm not sure what it smells like, but the end result is beautiful!
