I love Thanksgiving. No presents, no guilt, no religion -- just food, friends, and family (my children home from school). It all begins by selecting the freshest produce, buying the turkey and trimmings. Then baking the pies, or in my case, a special birthday cake every year for my daughter.
The turkey goes in early Thanksgiving morning and people begin arriving early afternoon while the fragrant cooking smells permeate the house.
My favorite tradition is creating a theme for the Thanksgiving table. It's kind of a temporary and fleeting artwork. This year it is green, offset with grey, black, silver, and white.
To see pictures of my Thanksgiving table for 2010, be my friend on Facebook. I've posted the new photos for this year in the Thanksgiving 2010. Look for other albums of other Thanksgiving themes from the past few years.
This is the one day that I truly feel grateful for my family and friends, and giving thanks for being able to work as an artist.
Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
