Happy Thanksgiving

This year, I practiced my handlettering skills with excerpts from Psalm 100.

I sketched these in my Moleskine sketchbook, sometimes late at night while with my family.  This explains why I started off with a misspelling!
As Julia Nunes says, "What I lack in accuracy, I make up for in enthusiasm."  :)

Other times, I doodle during church or meetings.

I enjoyed doing research from other artists to see how they portrayed similar concepts of gratitude.

Most of all, this was a wonderful exercise in sketching and in gratefulness.  It's always a good day when you practice mindfulness - especially to remind yourself to count your blessings.

Just for fun, here is Alex singing a song that his Kindergarten class sang at a local nursing home this week on a field trip.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

The Union Jack I proudly bear Emblazoned in my bulldog hair. A tribute to a fearsome man: Dear Winston, 'twas your sturdy plan That broke the chains of tyranny. How I desire to honor thee.

IF: Trail

A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

IF: Skyline

This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
