For our prompt of “Mountains” today, I’ve sketched one with this mountain goat standing on it. As I was thinking about this prompt, the song “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” from the musical The Sound of Music leapt into
That is the problem with labels – it’s all to easy to give them a very narrow definition when they’re just a convenient way to refer to something. I love your mountain goat. Now I must be off to see if I can get ‘Climb ev’ry mountain’ out of my head. Earworm begone!
Fantastic, Charlie and yes you are an artist. We all are here. You are also a writer. That is not my calling. I do love my art. As for the song if could be far worse but I would tell you the one that comes to my mind as it will get stuck for days. 😞
Nice work Charlie! We are all artist Charlie we are thought to draw when we are in school, but yes later on as we grow we know what to choose, some become artist, musicians some writers like you 😀 and on and on…keep going Charlie!

Vidya, I enjoyed reading about your continuing creative journey. You’ve discovered that the learning process is most profound when you learned to teach yourself, through patience, experimentation,discernment, and most of all, practice. Your paintings are beautiful and exprsss the wonderful person that you are. Thank you for sharing and inspiring me!
For our prompt of “Raccoon” today, I opted for a little one with an apple. Recently, I sketched our dog Phineas and his friends, which included a raccoon named Bob. We imagine that our dog has lots of animal
Your raccoon is so cute! Have you ever seen the video of the pet raccoon that was returned to the wild successfully, but came visiting while the family was on vacation? He went through all their cupboards and tore through the walls and generally destroyed portions of the house. They said they stil loved him, but were going to try and move him further away.
Thanks, Sandra! 😃💕 I haven’t seen that video! Oh wow… yeah, that would be quite something to come home to. I wonder if the raccoon was just a bit pissed off though. It was his home at one time after all. Maybe he didn’t want to leave it. I picture him saying, “you want wild? I’ll show you wild!” lol
Your spontaneous writing is always interesting to read! Bob is adorable, like his West coast cousins who periodically dig up my yard. It’s hard to be mad at them, and it’s always a treat to see them roaming around.
Stupid raccoons come on our deck to eat cat food, and often leave a “calling card.”. Makes me crazy ! If they weren’t so darn cute, I’d make Joe trap them all and move them to the other side of the river!
Raccoons are cute indeed. But they are not indigenous where I live – in Belgium. “They were introduced to Europe as exotic pets and have exploded in population since the 1970s. Now considered an invasive species, the raccoon threatens to sweep the continent with infectious and parasitic diseases like rabies, researchers warn.”
Rabies was as good as eliminated over here. Sigh, we can forget about that. And as for the raccoon… it has come here and probably it stays… So maybe I’ll get the chance to see one over here too 🙂
I am back with a mind full of imaginary things! I love your Bob. Your coloring of him is spot on. Thanks for sharing that story about Bandit. I think you should create a book about Phineas. Oh if you want a good imaginary read, read “Forky’s Craft Buddies Day”. I purchased it for the wonderful childlike illustrations, but when I read it, I fell in love with it. Funny with a warm ending. 😉
Adorable little critter you have painted. More than a doodle for the personality you injected into him made him real! When I was a kid, maybe 8 or so, my father brought home a baby raccoon which my brother and I took care of. Unfortunately (we thought) we had to return him to his natural home in the woods as he became a bit vicious! I have no idea how he faired. At least we loved him while we had him. Once more your story stirred up a happy memory for me. Thanks for sharing, Charlie!
Thanks so much, Marsha! 😃💕 Oh wow! Love that you had to chance to raise a baby raccoon! Yeah, they’re still wild animals, but soooo cute and interesting! I just love them! Glad this brought back good memories!
11/18/19 Racoon We’ve always had at least one family of racoons living in our backyard and I love seeing the mischievous little critters. One day I happened to walk by our back door and these three little characters were peaking over the bottom of the screen door at one of our cats who was keeping a close eye on these guys. I didn’t have a…[Read more]
Fantastically cute, Mary! I love to watch little, curious critters. So far I have only seen one very large raccoon here which was passing through one winter looking for fun. No success so keep on going.
Our prompt of “Pomegranate” today is perhaps one of the most special prompts of this art challenge. November is officially Pomegranate Month! Although, nobody seems to know why or how this month became a
Your pomegranates look so luscious and juicy, they’d be worth all the effort. Hubby and I came down with the cold that my brother brought home from England (now that was a gift I could have done without, lol), so we slept much and drank lots of tea and honey this weekend. At least the cold waited until after the music festival. Speaking of that music festival, are either you or Philippe into Celtic music via French Quebec? I’ve been trying to find the translation for this song that is about a woman who is 8 ft tall, very large and very unhappy. https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=vishten
Thanks, Sandra! 😃💕 And hope you feel better soon! Actually, we’ve never listened to Celtic French music, though my family often listens to Celtic music. I tried to play it for Philippe, but he was too distracted with his antique show to be helpful. 😊hehe
Love your thoughts so much, Charlie 🥰. I believe you’ve made everyone feel happy everyday. Indeed, I’ve still remember your pomegranate you used to sketch, it’s beautiful so that I wanted to crave it. So I just painted a pomegranate being on its branch to force my mind forgetting your sketch for a while hehe.
Pomegranates are so pretty, and I want to love them, but the seeds make me crazy. My fall and winter fruits are citrus. When I was little and going to Sunday school we had to learn a piece and recite it in front of the congregation. Afterward we trooped to the basement and every kid got a paper bag with candy, peanuts, and a single orange. Maybe that is what has lead to my love affair with winter citrus, lasting to this day.
Beautiful pommie!! 🙂 Interestingly enough I was the patient kiddo who would put all the pomegranate fruits in a bowl and when it was all done after some time lol i would feast. I do not eat them as much as I did but then their is the juice!!! Which I love!! 🙂
