Fall  8 x 10 pastel 

I became attached to Autumn and she sold right away, so I decided to try her again, but she needed her own name.

Turkey Trot

Turkey Trot  12 x 12 pastel
This started with just the tom, but seemed boring so I added the others. I think it's a lot more interesting when you have your friends with you.
