Giving Thanks

This weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada.  So as it is a day to give thanks for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed, I thought I would show you a painting I did a little while back.

My grandmother grew garlic in her garden and after she passed my uncle carried on the tradition.   After the bulbs were harvested, they would let them dry and save them for cooking.  They would always set some aside for replanting.  They were absolutely huge bulbs!  And if you love garlic, you would love these!  So flavorful!

I painted this one on an 8x8 inch gallery wrapped canvas using acrylic paint and I also collaged some handwritten text.

I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a Happy Columbia Day to my American friends!
