It’s the time of the year when many reflect on all they are grateful for, and the Nature Artists’ Guild would like to add a few items for consideration –
- The friends and family who support our artistic endeavors
- The time (however little) and space (however small) for creating
- The support and encouragement of other artists who understand the unique challenges involved
- The time and effort of all the volunteers who have kept the Nature Artists’ Guild running so smoothly for so many years
- The Morton Arboretum, for its inspiring natural beauty as well as for providing historic and lovely meeting and exhibit spaces and a quality learning environment
Please feel free to add to the list in the comments below.
Happy Thanksgiving, and don’t forget to give your turkey a nod of respect!

Ms. Fisk, Thanks for this wonderful message and thanks for sharing your painting of handsome Tommy T. I noticed your comment. You know how much I like him! He’s is so cute and I think he may represent our group so well…After all, as they say, (at least my mother ALWAYS said this to me when I was hanging’ with the wrong crowd), “Birds of a feather flock together!” Maybe he could be our mascot? Good thing we know how to have some fun! Looking forward to our 30th celebration and hope to see everybody there!
Well said! I would also like to thank the Morton Arboretum for supporting the ongoing research they are conducting to ensure the health and well-being of our environment, in these especially challenging times, and all of the volunteers they have trained over the years to become citizen scientists and stewards.
