Shoe Shopping Turkeys
4″ x 6″ Watercolor Postcard
This is a painting I did in 2008 for a WetCanvas WDE. The same photo reference was posted for this weekend. This image started a back and forth animated play between Eyepaint and myself, that went on for months. Thelma the Wonder Turkey and Bert the Lizard. Eyepaint even went on to write two little books about these characters. What fun we had!
Bert and Thelma shared a lot of fascinating times and met a lot of interesting characters.
And it landed them in hot water on a regular basis.
Yes, they even got involved in some cow tipping with a rascally frog!
We added frogs, eventually. Bud, Weiser and Er.
I have a lot more, but I didn’t think to put them in a single journal most of the time, so many have been scattered here and there. Each week, they went to whatever country or town the host lived in and they had adventures revolving around the host’s references. Fun, fun, fun!!!
