Last night I searched through my studio to see if there were any items that could be used to create turkeys. As I looked at all the ephemera that was lying about I couldn't begin to guess how the items would be assembled to create the turkeys that would decorate the office.

With bags of "turkey makin's" in hand I headed to work anxious to see the creative genius that was sleeping in the minds of the audit staff. Today was the day to make turkeys from the pumpkins and gourds and various other items from my studio. These fabulous creations came to be from gluing silk flowers, leaves, pipe cleaners, beads, paper, and other miscellaneous onto the pumpkins and gourds.

What a GREAT group of artistic talented people I have the pleasure of working beside.

Couldn't wait to share as the turkeys are so cute and unique.

What with a glory goes and comes the year!
The buds of spring, those beautiful barbingers
Of sunny skies and cloudless times, enjoy
Life's newness, and earth's garniture spread out;
And when the silver habit of the clouds
Comes down upon the Autumn sun, and with
A sober gladness the old year takes up
His bright inheritance of golden fruits,
A pomp and pageant fill the splendid scene......

(excerpt from AUTUMN by Longfellow)

With autumn in the air and the color of the trees beginning to fade to make way for winter's white blanket I created this wall hanging. It colors are brilliant like autumn's painted landscape.

The sunflower is painted on a transparency so that when hung the sunlight can shine through it or when hung on a wall the color of the wall creates an added hue.
