Gobble, Gobble

Wee Picasso painted this fantastic Turkey as a donation to our local food bank. My office raised funds to buy 320 Turkey dinners and she went along to help present this on air. I usually avoid pic's of Wee Picasso on the page - but could not resist this one. I did cover her name which is signed on the bottom corner by her age. My coworker painted the green background in advance (we only had one hour to paint this) and left a space for her turkey. I had a picture of what I had wanted her to create. I explained the meaning of a commission piece of art. She finished the Turkey then told me she wanted to paint pink hearts all over it. I suggested a compromise and she painted her hearts and swirls in light green. When interviewed she told them she wanted the people who had no money or food to smile when they saw the funny turkey.
