Happy Thanksgiving and the newlyweds return

 On their wedding day Christopher and Megan

Happy Thanksgiving again to everyone in Canada
celebrating, and now sleeping after at least one
fantastic dinner I hope.  Tonight we had dinner
with Megan and Christopher home from their
wonderful honeymoon in Bali.  Steven, Sam, Megan,
Christopher and I sat down to a feast of turkey,
stuffing, roast potatoes, salad and pumpkin pie.
The newlyweds had been swimming (diving) with
sea turtles, and saw beautiful schools of fish
set against the coral reefs, (which are reviving
apparently -- very happy news).
 The Skype series I did based on Megan
 and Christopher last year
Three paintings
Acrylic on canvas
 Each 24 x 24 inches

You know that I have painted my family many
times.  They have frequently been willing subjects.
And I love the photograph above of them on their
wedding day. 
Megan and Christopher
 I also love my photo of them the day after, happily starting a new life.

Have an appreciating-life's-wonderful-moments day
