Black Friday, Mellow Yellow Daily Painting by Everglades Artist Jo-Ann Sanborn

Today is Black Friday, or Blitz Day. It's the day for putting retailers out of the red and into the black on their balance sheets. If today is a good day, it could be a good sign of a rebounding economy. Still, some of us prefer to skip the early mornings, the parking traumas, and the overly hyped sales. How much nicer to stay home with family, have a slice of leftover pie and make some nice turkey soup!

I'll be busy today getting ready for the Naples Renaissance show this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, if you'd like to work off some of that turkey and pie, and still get some shopping done at your leisure, walk the Naples Renaissance Art Festival on 10th street, just up from the Naples Depot and south of Coastland Mall. It's an invitational festival, and there'll be many renown local and distant artisans happy to show you their work and help you to select just the right gifts. Handmade gifts and original art will bring value and pleasure years for many years to come.

Thanks to the purchaser of yesterday's plump little pumpkin!

Art may be hard but Black Friday, apparently can get you killed!
I like your version much better. Soup and leftover pie.

Hard to belive that people needed something in Walmart more than a life! So sad.
