From me to you: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
At this time of year, I cherish those I love, and am thankful for the many blessings I included!

I don't do portraits very often, but every once in a while I do try one. This one is a self portrait and it does resemble me a bit...a younger me, which is good! This is about 4 x 6.


  1. You look like a lovely person. :) I remember when I tried a self portrait. It was quite scary. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  2. HOW GOOD TO SEE YOU Joan! Wonderful work! A most blessed Thanksgiving to you!

  3. Love this!!! I wouldn't know WHERE to start on a portrait in watercolors, let alone getting a likeness of myself in pencil! You do some nice work :)

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you Joan, great job on the self portrait.

    See you next week

  5. And meant to say Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Where would we be without encouragement from all our internet friends.. you are like family to me! xo

  6. This is wonderful, Joan! You are so cute! Hope you and your husband had a wonderful Thanksgiving day!
