I remember a time back in elementary school when my art teacher asked us to raise our hand if we enjoyed making things. Well….my hand is still up! I’m Tina Folks and I grew up on Long Island, New York and I am a f
For our prompt of “Bird Feeder” today, I decided to sketch one being enjoyed by a couple of birds. Indeed, in these times, I realize now it equally looks a bit like they are social distancing. But, today is rather
Fantastic Charlie! It is beginning to look like Spring is coming. Flowers are starting to sprout. The woodchuck has claimed the space under the deck and little chuckies should be peeking out soon. They are so fun to watch and I spend a good deal of time in my studio so I will be able to watch them grow. Glad that you got the peaches and flour. I have to venture out soon.
It is important that we share and spread the happiness with each other as much as possible these days. I found out last night that my niece committed suicide on Monday. The number of suicides is up with all the craziness going on, so you never know, that ‘Hi, how are you’ or ‘I’m thinking about you’ might make all the difference.
I had a yellow-bellied sapsucker in the yard a week ago. First time ever. They are in the woods, but never in my front yard maple tree. A friend of mine pos some pictures she got of loons which are migrating through now. They spend a day or two on Madison lakes before heading north for breeding and babies. When I lived way up north, I had a place on Lake Julia and there was a pair of loons on the lake every year. The loon yodel is one of my favorite sounds on earth. It’s one thing I miss living down here in the flat lands.
For our prompt of “Sprinkles” today, I chose a cupcake with some littered across the top. As I get closer to my birthday next Monday, I find myself craving cake. Granted, there won’t be a party or gathering of any
I really can’t wait until they invent the transporter. It was well established on Star Trek that they could use a person’s pattern to beam them back as they were at an earlier time. So you could eat like a pig, and then just beam yourself back to before you ate. Although … maybe that wouldn’t work because then you probably wouldn’t remember eating the cake the either. But then againg, maybe you could just eat the whole cake, beaming yourself backwards after every slice. Even if you didn’t remember it, you’d still have the joy of eating it and the anticipation every time you beamed. Yeah. I think that would work. The transporter beam as a weight control method.
Philippe’s a scientist right? Tell him he needs to invent this for your birthday, lol.
haha!! Now there’s the ultimate birthday gift indeed! Love it! 😃💕 Yeah, I’ll tell him to set to work on that immediately. Though, yeah, if you beamed yourself back to before you ate it, I guess you’d always lose the memory of eating. Wouldn’t help with immediate future cravings though! lol
Charlie, I don’t think your Birthday will be tiny! Think of all your fans who love you and are grateful for what you have shared. We all will be thinking of you and wishing you a very special Birhtday!
I have ingredients for chocolate chip cookies, or oatmeal raisin cookies, or cake. But tomorrow is lasagna making day, so no dessert because I only have energy to make one big thing a day. My friend next door has cancer and he is finding it hard to eat much because the drugs have changed his tastebuds. Lasagna sounds good to him, so I’m making a double batch to send one up to them. I hope he likes it. Food is really a comfort in times like these.
Bon Anniversaire, Charlie! And may God grant you many more years! That’s a tasty looking cupcake, sprinkles and all. The metal cupcake cup looks familiar, as you showed us your technique in the Karen Abend sketching video – many thanks for that! My favorite “gateau de fête” is yellow cake with real butter cream chocolate frosting, right from the Betty Crocker box! But it never stays around long enough to pose for a painting!
Merci beaucoup, Bob! 😃💕 And yay! Glad you enjoyed the Sketchbook Revival video! Yep… you know exactly how I made that shine now! 😉 And I’m now drooling over your cake description! YUM! I want that! But true… I rarely sketch dessert from life… it’s meant to be enjoyed immediately!
Simple little cupcake. I would eat it! I think we have so many personality similarities because we are both Aries. 😉 I am with you regarding, “I almost bought you something.” It’s like giving someone a balloon and popping it(even though I don’t like balloons because they may pop). Instead they should say, “I saw something that reminded me of you.” A softer blow.
So this is the secret of your such wonderful food Sketching practice…that you love your treats so much…may I say to the point of obsession..😉
…like many flower painters love gardening as well…and that’s the reason their flower paintings are so beautiful…🤔
Thank you so much, Fanna! hehe… glad you enjoyed this post! 😃💕 And I think I might have had Chantilly cake from Whole Foods before as it’s the same as what you’ve described. And it was awesome! It was just a slice, as that’s all I could smuggle under the watchful gaze of Philippe. Alas their delivery is overwhelmed these days so we don’t shop there anymore. I’ll have to check our regular grocery and see if they have it… or better, challenge Philippe to make his version! lol 😉
Delightful, Charlie! May you have a dozen of these for your birthday, calorie free! Hey, my birthday is usually overlooked because it is so close to Christmas, but thankfully my loved ones are good about recognizing it, even if they give me a birthday/Christmas gift. Be well, my friend!
