My Response to Black Friday

"Brighter Days" 4 x 4 Oil on Gessobord
I really dislike the term "Black Friday" about as much as I dislike shopping.  I'd rather be in the studio painting any day.  This little colorful painting is my response to the term "Black".

Thanksgiving was lovely, my son's mother-in-law hosted dinner at her home.  She is an exquisite hostess and had invited my other son and his family, all eight of them, to join us.  We had 16 people total and four of them were little girls, so precious.  They all played together and were so polite.  Thank goodness we got out of there without any leftovers.  I tried to be very good and not overeat, and I succeeded. 

Now the onward march to Christmas!  Let's see if I can get out of cooking for that one too.

I hate shopping too Cindy! I don't understand why people enjoy fighting the crowds. Unfortunately I couldn't get into the studio, but that would have been a nice place to go. Love the painting and congratulations on getting accepted into the show.
Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!
