This Thanksgiving card is a painting of our own (pet) Narrangansett Turkey, named Billy. We have a female too that Billy is trying to win the affection of but she is more interested in Billy's reflection in the back porch sliding glass window - hilarious to watch but sad to see him so rejected. They are not the brightest birds. Even when he slinks off feeling defeated she'll stretch to see past her own reflection calling for the male she saw beyond the glass. One of these days I'll do a painting of him in full tail feather but for now, this is a close up of his head when he was younger.

Hi Di - I'm sure Billy the Turkey will get his heart's desire in the end if we all keep sending him positive vibes!

Dear Judy, Cheers and thanks to you for your wonderful blog. Billy says thanks too for everyone's good thoughts. Power of thought must be working because he 'almost' got some 'action' this past week. Smiles, Lisa

That's great news about Billy, Lisa! Sending some more positive thoughts so keep us posted!

This collection is beautiful. I love the color pallets too. Hand drawn art compels the viewer to take a closer look. Super nice delivery. Thanks Judy for including me.
