Gratitude

I about to hop in the car to drive to Colorado, but first, I thought I would quickly list some things I am thankful for.
1.  Peanut butter
2.  hot tea
3.  Pono
4.  warm sweaters
5.  my husband (this is not in order of importance, mind you.  He would be first, if that were the case!)
6.  all the variations of the color blue
7.  the desert light
8.  good friends
9.  oil paint
10.  my family

Do you remember this painting?


Well, now it looks like this.  I was hoping to take it with me to Colorado, but it is still just a little too wet.   "Autumn Moon", oil on canvas, 60 x 48 inches.


Have a great week and a great Thanksgiving, everyone!

And I'm thankful for you!
I loved the first painting, and LOVE the new piece! I'd love to see it up close, to experience the textures and subtleties.
Happy Thanksgiving Sweetie!

I laughed when I saw peanut butter at the top of your list. HA!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Karine!

Yay for husbands, peanut butter, family and friends and the color blue. That is a lot to be grateful for and that is only half the list! Hope you had a lovely holiday.
