8 x 10 Acrylic

Well here we are the last DSFDF before Thanksgiving so I decided I am coming to visit each and every one of you bearing gifts for Thanksgiving via the Web of course but nevertheless that is what this picture represents.
I am thankful for all of you DSFDF'ers for without your comments, e-mails, calls I would not have the richness my life has in the Art World.
I thank you all and I bless you to have the best Thanksgiving ever.
PLease go check out all the other submissions on this fabulous website of Different Strokes From Different Folks, Thank you Karin.
