What a lovely expression of 'thanksgiving', the golden colours really have a harvest kind of feel, and the roasted chicken looks plump, in this cellebration offering! Love the colours and figurative expression, wonderful! Regards Angela Susan

How long do all of you keep your references...are you partial to particular ones which you may use, time and again ?
Terrific that you had the great reference photos to recreate the weathered old barn. I like to paint these scenes, so many are vanishing, collapsing in place... view answer
