Happy Turkey Day

It's Thanksgiving weekend in Canada and as I reflect on my paintings this is the one that pops into mind as a representation of the holidays. To me, it really feels like fall on the prairies. It also represents how thankful I am to all who have purchased my paintings. The woman who owns this piece said it reminded her of riding her horse on her acreage in the fall, so I named it "Fall Ride". She actually now has two of my paintings and her daughter has one. I love when customers become a bit more like friends- it makes my heart happy.

Just recently I sold a painting to a lovely woman in Ottawa and also heard that two of my paintings will be heading to Geneva! I am so grateful to know that my paintings are appreciated in so many different places. Another piece of news is that one of the Georgian Bay paintings has been purchased for a corporate collection. I feel very thankful for that.

Mostly I am grateful for the constant support and enthusiasm I receive from so many friends and Facebook "fans". My sister and I were talking the other night and she said she couldn't believe that it has been five years since I have been blogging. My response was that I am motivated by the blog and the encouragement I receive each time I post. It all boils down to you- those that I know visit from the traffic I get here and those that respond to the posts on Facebook. It keeps me going.

So thank you to each and every one of you.   

Have a safe and happy weekend!
