Words of late artist Frank Howell...I totally relate!

"There are few days off and no retirement from this entanglement of knowledge, passion and vision that will be molded and converted into creative expression. There are no guarantees of acceptance, understanding or reward, but...the noise inside the mind never ceases. I will paint today, tonight and for as many tomorrows as I am given..." Words of the late artist Frank Howell...

Mr.Turkey Makes His Annual Appearance

I mentioned last post that I needed to go find my turkey that comes out each Thanksgiving...I had a little trouble finding him this year.  When I did find him, I realized he needed a bath.  I am happy to announce that he is now all cleaned up and ready to make his Thanksgiving Day appearance, but I'm going to share him with you early.  

It's hard to tell from the pics, but he's a BIG turkey!  He stands about 17 inches tall, and he's about that wide, too.

After spending a very sad week with Mama at the hospital about five years ago I headed home.  I stopped in Montevallo, just south of Birmingham, at a store that deals in antiques and art.  It was my birthday, and I was feeling really down.  When I saw him, he made me smile...so, he was my gift to myself that day.  I buckled him into the front passenger seat of the mustang and we headed home down I-65.  I'm not going to say whether or not we talked to one another on that trip...but it was nice to have company along for the ride.  

I don't remember the artist's name, and it's actually not marked.  I have that information somewhere- I wish I could share it with you now.  I like to give recognition to artists whenever possible...maybe I'll come across that paper so that I can share it later.

I hope you enjoyed meeting my turkey friend!  He always enjoys hanging out with my friends and family on Thanksgiving.
