Art Journal Hide The Turkey

Last week, Girl2’s kindergarten class was given the way cool assignment of disguising a turkey.  They were each given a drawing of a turkey that they colored and pasted a disguise onto so that it wouldn’t be found on Thanksgiving Day.  My wonderful daughter put a big red nose and antlers on her turkey.  She said, “He is Rudolph. No one would eat Rudolph because that’s Santa’s reindeer.”

Can you say venison? I thought that you could.

Anyway, I thought that was a brilliant project so I decided I would paint a scene depicting a hidden turkey and journal about her project.  Initially I was going to have 21 turkeys hidden throughout the page to remind everyone that time to sign up for http://gregorydowling.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/1154 21 Secrets is running out.  However, as my friend Kolomyya Rhomany says, once you break out the small brushes, the paintings done.  She’s absolutely right because once I painted the turkey lamp, I lost all interest in painting anything else.

I also sang a little tribute to Arlo Guthrie.
