Turkey in the Straw

Well, I'm moving on from Halloween. I don't have
children at home or children in my nice quite
retirement community. Ahhhh, retirement, wonderful.
I'm ready for turkey. Even if he is coming to
dinner dressed as a Pilgrim.

My image is colored with my Copics. I've used onion bag netting,
burlap, feathers and raffia for embellishment. The sentiment
comes with the image.
