FEATHERY FIRE AND THANKSGIVING

This is my first original painting in Paint Shop Pro...I just decided to let things flow nothing specific...no goals in mind and this is what I created. I love it...I like the flow in it...the colors....and a sort of softness to it! I am quite pleased with the outcome... This is my entry for Day 22 of AEDM. I even got a chance to update my personal journal ELLIE'S CRAZY LIFE...you can always pop on over there and see what is up! I wanted to wish you and yours a Very BLESSED and BEAUTIFUL Thanksgiving. If you do not celebrate this holiday - I wish you a BEAUTIFUL fall harvest. Here is a bit of inspiration in honor of the holiday:

BE THANKFUL.

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Elle,
I like your painting! I have adobe painter and I have been slow learing how to use it. Two Christmases ago I got a wacom Tablet mouse and couldn't wait to try it and now I never use it because I get impatient.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!!
