For our prompt of “Camera” today, I ended up with a sketch of two mice with a vintage camera. One mouse is happy in front of the camera and the other is a bit camera shy. I’m more like the latter mouse, but I am
Definitely a bit of nostalgia here with the vintage camera…I will be joining in on the fun of the Art Work Summit..I will be checking you out there 🙂 In the meantime may you and Phillipe and Phineas have a blessed Thanksgiving and keep the joy and wonder in your creative spirit..It is definitely an inspiration to me!!
I totally understand how the mouse behind the camera feels….totally comfortable behind the lens and no need to be in front of it. Besides, someone has to take the pictures. 😊 Have a fabulous Thanksgiving Day!!!
Fabulous Charlie! We were cloudy, cold bur dry today. Rain is coming in tonight. It snowed north of here. I painted and worked on the business end of art. Learning new things to grow the business. Enjoy your turkey day! We will be gathering with the family by zoom tomorrow evening.
Marisela yes I will pray for you. I would call a crisis line and see what your options are. Maybe you can get home help or a volunteer. Yes you need medical care. We don’t pay for it up here in British Columbia althoguh before we did according to income. It is horrible that Americans don’t have much for medicare.
Cute cute cute! My son has a small camera collection, but his are a bit older. (No surprise since he is a photographer.) He has the Kodak kind that have the bellows that pop out. They are beautiufl pieces of art with their metal scroll work and designs. Have a very lovely Thanksgiving with your little family.
It can be difficult to figure out if you haven’t been on a site like this before. If you haven’t already, look for the the Round Icon next to the shopping cart (up top on my laptop).

Wonderful!! Monoprinting is so much fun!! Years ago I took a watercolor monoprinting workshop and LOVED it. Still have the plexiglass and other supplies tucked away somewhere…one of these days I will pull them out and use them.
For our prompt of “Umbrella” today, I did a quick sketch of one and then just started scribbling to see what might appear to go along with it. The umbrella ended up on the beach belonging to a little bunny
Sweet rabbit, Charlie! Aahh, my dream vacation is to be on a boat anchored in a small lake, with a huge stack of books and enough food to last a week….at least. Of course, I would probably be stir crazy after a few hours…but in my dream…what a wonderful way to spend a week.
We got all of our thanksgiving fixings too. I am making a turkey. I love hot turkey sandwiches with potatoes and gravy! Leftover stuffing is great too! There will be four of us. Our neighbors have been in two weeks of isolation.
Did you know that there is some scientific evidence that reading a favorite book from your childhood can help relieve stress. I suspect the same is true of watching a favorite movie. I have a few favorite books that I pull out every few years to reread. They never take long, and they always take me back to childhood feeling.
Charlie, Dull westerns? I would pretend I was an actress and gunslinger female partner with Matt Dillon et al. We even had an abandoned shack about the size of an apartment bathroom up the road and it did look like the Rifleman’s cabin. There was even an empty tin can on the floor. Having gotten nowhere trying to get me to learn crochet and embroidery las done by proper young ladies of the time, my parents gave me the requested cap gun for Christmas (I still can’t figure out how I managed to get that –?) They never knew I went into an abandoned cabin (no doors or windows but they would have freaked out anyway. I made sure those cowboy shows rocked!
Marisela I love alone time. Cuddly time especially if it is rainy and gloomy outside. I never think of solitude as aloneness for it is not. It is revitalizing! That’s when God can best talk with us and we can best listen. Solitude is a blessing. Enjoy it.
Sweet little bunny. Love his carrot cocktail! I have a friend who is in Mexico right now. She keeps sending me pictures of the resident iguana. I don’t like iguanas, but he has some beautiful orange color on him. She said he lounges on the side of the pool in some plants and occasionally goes for a dip. Bam! There’s your next chapter in your book. You’re welcome. Teeheeeeeee!
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 hehe! Oh, I still sketch and paint on Thanksgiving… Philippe is cooking all day and it keeps me out of his way! lol And yes, there are definitely going to be much better days ahead soon!
For our prompt of “Puppy” today, I ended up with a little beagle and a Christmas present. I’ve no idea if the present is from him or one that’s for him and he’s wanting to know if he can open it now. When I was a
Legal dog precedent decrees that the present belongs to the dog. Haven’t you seen the t-shirts with the dog rules?
1. I found it, it’s mine.
2. I got to it first, it’s mine.
3. If it’s in my yard, it’s mine.
4. I chewed it all up, it’s mine.
5. It looks like my toy, it’s mine.
6. It was in my mouth first, it’s mine.
7. I had it all day yesterday, it’s mine.
8. I have it buried someplace, it’s mine.
9. I do not care if it was yours, it’s mine.
10. If I broke it, it’s yours.
Back to beagles! I approve! There is a possum out on our deck right now eating cat food. That’s the only Xmas gift he needs. Especially if it comes every day. They don’t hibernate so they are always looking for food.
He’s a beautiful and well behaved beagle. Just look at the patience he’s exhibiting by not tearing into that pretty package. It’s almost like he’s waiting for the go ahead from you, Charlie!! When we had dogs they never showed any interest at all in opening packages at Christmas but our first cat LOVED opening her presents and watching her tear into those packages was more fun than opening our own….okay, almost more fun! Have a great week, Charlie!!
Adorable Charlie! I’m glad your Christmas lights arrived. We just saw pictures from the younger daughter who’s house is all decked out already. I think I counted 5 trees. A bit over the top. She makes up for my lack of holiday spirit.
So sweet. I think he is thinking, “Great, you gave me this gift early, but I can’t open it for another month?!?!” I like to wrap the gifts early (even my own), because most of the time I forget what is in them. 😉
Aww thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 I couldn’t hold all of the excitement in if I tried! hehe… and as for dog farts… Phineas does that as well. It happens more as he gets older. And I love that you have ornaments that remind you Margaret… that’s so lovely!
Prompt: Puppy. Did you know that huskys and other sled dogs are being studied in hopes of helping with obesity and diabetes? They can do a metabolic switch that helps them retain high levels of energy on their long runs. #DoodlewashNovember2020 #PostcardsForTheLunchBag @Hahnemühle_USA @hahnemuehle_global @hahnemuehle_artistpapers #ZebraPen_USA…[Read more]
Fantastic painting. I adore huskies and oh course they have special powers! All huskies know this they are just waiting for us to acknowledge their superior everything… no wait they don’t give a damn about our opinions, that’s why I adore them!
For our prompt of “Herbs” today, I thought about food first, but then I thought about a little craft project I saw recently on how to make a holiday wreath out of rosemary. I didn’t have the materials to make one
I painted three pine trees in snow today to send away to friends who have sent me gifts. Now my fingers and dress have gauche snow on them! Lol. I was thinking about Xmas cookies. I bet you could use a very soft brush and watered down food coloring and do a watercolor on a white frosted cookie. Two birds, one stone!
Sweet little character and what a wonderfully fragrant wreath that would be. It is time to start thinking about making Christmas cookies. In past years I’ve made 9 or 10 different varieties to put in boxes and give as gifts but I think this year I am cutting back a bit; so many of the people I’ve given cookies to in the past have moved away and that many cookies in the house is just too much of a temptation. 😍
Oregon has just required that workers who do go into work must wear masks at all times even if no one else is in the room. Hubby doesn’t want to wear a mask all day when he’s the only one there, which he mostly is, so he’s going to be working at home for a while. It will be interesting to see how we get on. I’m looking forward to it but it will mean I’ll have to change some of my art habits!
Time off, Charlie! Yes you deserve it and have fun with that tree and the lights. I am sure Phillippe will make cookies and likely enjoy those too. I am going to make Scotch shortbread. I bought half a pumpkin pie in October and no other dessert since last Christmas so I am giving myself a good girl treat. It isn’t the calories, it’s the fats and cholesterol you gotta watch. Have fun!
Thanks so much, Linda! 😃💕 Well, it’s time off for me as Philippe is still working and I’m just getting caught up on projects. But it’s a nice break. Yay! I’m glad you’re giving yourself a good girl treat. You deserve it!
The idea of a rosemary wreath is appealing. On Thanksgiving break from college I would make huge, very full balsam wreathes to sell. Dad would paint pine cones, Mother would make big bows and decorate the wreathes . A family project. We lived on a farm on a fairly busy road between larger cities and the wreathes would be sold right on the edge of the road. A simpler time.
She is so sweet. Her little expression is almost saying, “I’m sorry for pooping in your yard all year.” My tree is glowing and making me very happy. I’ll finish it up today and start on the rest of the house. I’m happy to hear that I am not the only one who has their tree up!
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Yay for decorations! I love that you’re good at it. I’ve no idea if we are, but everything sparkles so I consider that a win. lol And yay to no toxic or bitter people. There’s never a need for that!
