Christmas Turkey – October 30, 2009

“I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time.”

– Anna Freud

I guess this little Christmas Turkey is fitting for today’s post, because this just may be her Halloween costume.

About Anna Freud

Austrian psychoanalyst Anna Freud was a pioneer in the field of child psychiatry; she also worked closely with her father, Sigmund Freud, in developing his theories. She was born in Vienna in 1895 and fled to London with her parents in 1938, escaping the Nazi regime. When her father became sick with cancer, she took over his studies, becoming his intellectual heir. She founded the Hampstead Clinic to work with children. She died in 1982.

    Love the turkey and your quote. And yes, it’s perfect for a series.

    I like the living turkey surviving the Holidays and strutting across your Christmas ornament, Beth. When I view your art I always think of series so I have a host of Holiday red-hatted animal ornaments running through my mind. Smile.

      Thanks, Leslie! I’m glad you see a series when you look at my paintings, because I am really trying to learn all I can about art licensing. I think my art would be suitable for that arena. Series is a good thing, in art licensing. Your encouragement means a lot to me. Thank you!
