Just delightful, Charlie! Your painting made me smile immediately, remembering those springy animals on the playground and your observation that they didn’t go anywhere except in our imagination is to wonderfully true. Your words on being and accepting your own self are equally wonderful and a super important reminder.
1,000 congratulations on your 1,000 days, Charlie! You are such an inspiration and it’s great to have your full doodlewash journey story here, along with the encouragement and guides for creating a wonderful habit. I especially appreciate your comments about needing to set aside more than 15 minutes every day because otherwise that time…[Read more]
Lovely cappuccino – and since I’m reading this in the morning, I might just make myself one now. It won’t be as fun and shiny as your painting, but at least I’ll be able to drink it! It’s also so fun to learn bits about your process. We always guessed that there was some wet paint lurking, but you’ve confirmed it. ( :

Philippe dressed as a toucan! Definitely. He owes that to you. Actually, I think it would be fun to see what animal mascots you could paint for all of those grown-up foods you have to eat now. Starting with Ronny the Rhino. We all need more glee and fun!!

Yay!! A Jessica review! Thanks for much for introducing Treckell and for the great review. That video of painting the Taj Mahal is amazing! Also, thank you thank you for your thoughts on creativity and dealing with critics, external and internal.
From pizza to da Vinci! Your posts are always such a treat, Charlie. Walter Isaacson just published a gorgeous biography of da Vinci you might want to look at. Love the pizza painting and I appreciate you omitting the extra pepperoni grease. ( :
An adorable little duckling! You have captured everything it means to be a little duck, including the glint in the eye showing the dreams of making anything possible. Just like you, Charlie – you make anything possible.
