Happy Thanksgiving

Wild Turkey by John James Audubon. Ben Franklin was cheering for the Wild Turkey to be the national bird, but the Bald Eagle won. Ha, I can just picture us having a national holiday centered around roasting the national bird.

A few weekends ago we visited the Stark Museum of Art in Orange, TX. Most of their collection is southwestern, which I'm not crazy about but they did have a huge collection of Audubon's work. I'm a fan of the American White Pelican-- I think it would look perfect in my room.
