Classic Thanksgiving: Art

This week, as you CC families finish out the semester and begin to look toward the holidays, I want to share with you some of the projects skilled artists have created throughout history as a way of giving thanks. Their creativity challenges us to think deeply, but it also offers a beautiful picture of giving the Lord our best work in all things.

One can imagine how much this rather simple picture (visually just a turkey being placed on a table surrounded by smiling, friendly people) must have meant to a nation in the midst of a terrible global war. It's a great example of a picture being worth a thousand+ words.
