Happy Thanksgiving

November 28, 2013










This was one of my first illustrations. I can no longer remember who the client was but I recall he wanted a black and white picture that resembled the work of Norman Rockwell. Unlike much of my work, this is painted on canvas.





I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. 



Somehow, in my mind, that kid peering out from behind the turkey is you! Happy Thanksgiving!

I love it--but did Rockwell do black & whites?

I love this piece of work. The details are incredible. From the painting and fruit bowl to the wall-paper. You even squeezed in a dog. Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family and your faithful blog followers.

That's a wonderful drawing, Stephen. Even a nod to Van Gogh in the background. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Stephen you are such a talented human. I love this black and white. Such detail and I love the happiness and warmth portrayed. We should all be this lucky to sit at a table where everyone is happy to be there, has nice things to say and doesn't cause a brouhaha. It has been many years since I've gathered with my extended family for just those reasons......they don't really behave themselves. Casa de Cuckoo on the other hand are concerned I'll have a melt down so it's all happy, happy, joy, something like that. Happy Turkey day to you and yours. Oma Linda

I felt the same as Pixel Peeper...that little boy with the light in his eyes was you waiting for someone to carve the bird. I really like this simple story.

Happy Thanksgiving! That's a great picture, sort of if Norman Rockwell were painting Leave it to Beaver.

I love the detail in the faces. But too much Seinfeld has me picturing Kramer's head on that plump fowl, and a crispy wing waving at me.
By: Val on November 28, 2013
That is amazing. I think 'ol Norman himself would have said so. Hope you and family had a great day. :)

As always, you make me envious of your artistic talent. I hope you enjoyed yesterday with your friends and family. Best wishes
