Are you as Happy as a Gull with a French Fry?

'Happiness Is...' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis
available as a print
A couple of weeks ago I was browsing Pinterest when I came across a photo of a bird with a french fry and the caption read 'Today I will be as happy as a bird with a french fry'. I thought that was such a great thought. I thought immediately of sea gulls and how excited they are for any scraps left by beach goers. I imagined this painting with a sea gull and his prize french fry. I like his attitude! I am going to try to remember to stay positive and grateful for all of the good things in my life. This will be my motto for the year! I think it would be fun to do a series of 'Happy as' paintings. Any ideas? This painting is on the new Canson Touch paper. Look for my review next week.
By the way, if you haven't discovered Pinterest, it is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. Let me know if you want an invite, it is wonderful!
