Welcome to our Thanksgiving Art & Gratitude Parade!
Thanksgiving is just under two weeks away, we are celebrating at the Art Licensing Show with a Portfolio Members, open-submission of Thanksgiving Art & Gratitude.
“There is always something to be grateful for…”
We’re inviting our ALSC artists to share a piece of Thanksgiving art that communicates and celebrates gratitude, thanks, love, peace, word art, inspiration, family, friends and even pumpkin pie if you’d like (for the love of pumpkin pie, which always seems in short supply the rest of the year)! This is the time when we take a pause to share a meal and celebrate with family, friends, and loved ones to express a prayer of gratitude for the people, the love and the things we have in our lives.
For us at the Art Licensing Show, we’re starting this celebration off by expressing how grateful we are for the amazing Artists on our site. And for the Art Directors, Product Development Managers, CEOs and Manufacturers who use the Art Licensing Show to fulfill their art licensing needs.
Make this the time for choosing gratitude, expressing kindness and building your own happiness. Being grateful and expressing kindness can also bring out the best in those around us. Some evidence suggests that we can actively choose to practice gratitude — and that doing so raises our happiness. And you don’t need to be a neuroscientist to know that choosing to focus on good things makes you feel better than focusing on bad things.
Make gratitude a practice regardless of how you feel, not just every November — but all year long. And let’s express gratitude not just for the big things like good heath, a job you love doing, having children and grandchildren, but for the things you experience in life and nature like — the smell of the fall season, the song on the radio that reminds you of high school or hearing from an old friend or relative. And even for Uncle Freddy, who will probably have a bit too much to drink this Thanksgiving while he shares his political views on the recent election. Let’s Give Thanks…. for all of it.
