Did you know that grey is an unusual color for a greyhound? And when they are grey, they are called blue? There are differing theories on the name’s origin, but one of the most popular is that the word came from the old English word ‘grei’, which meant dog, and ‘hundr’, which meant hunter. #doodlewashMay2020 #PostcardsForTheLunchBag…[Read more]
As I was going to figure out something to sketch for our prompt of “Wheat” today, I received an email from a food truck delivery service announcing it was International Burger Day. So, I ended up sketching a
Boy that burger looks so good Charlie! I am hoping to get downtown for lunch next week for either a burger or a chicken breast sandwich and a dark beer at our favorite Brewery. My husband is off all week so we will choose a quiet time to go. Baby steps and outdoor setting. Stay safe.
Did you know that wheat is used in particle board, paper, hair conditioners, adhesives, plastics, cups, golf tees, medical swabs, charcoal and more?

For our prompt of “Cherries” today, I sketched a bit of ice cream in a waffle bowl with a cherry on top. Several months ago, Philippe and I were shopping at HomeGoods and I saw a miraculous appliance known as a
This looks so yummy Charlie! There is a farm store up the road that is selling frozen gelato in interesting flavors and a soft served yogurt shop downtown that posts yummy looking treats on Facebook. One of these days I am going to get a treat!
This looks so darn good I’m tempted to go out and buy one of those waffle cup makers!!! OK, I won’t because there isn’t space in the cupboards for anything else but it is tempting. Funny, I never fail to find room for new art supplies. hmmm.
I’m with Philippe. Usually those specialty machines are impossible to put together or clean properly and never make anything as tasty as you expect. On the other hand – a mini donut factory? There’s a flea market in Florida that makes (or did) fresh donut holes as you watch. You specify what topping you want and they are the most decadent food on the face of the earth. I allow myself since I only go to Florida once or twice a year, if that. But. Ooh. To be able to make something like that at home. In no time at all, I’d be as round as a donut myself!
After working in a job where I made real fried donuts with a donut making machine, I have to admit that on more than one occasion I have spent time looking at the machines thinking I would like to own one at home. Ridiculous since each hopper of dough made in the neighborhood of 60 donuts. But still, now I’ve got the urge to check eBay in case someone has a used one that I should give a home! This is all your fault! !
This is so cute! I hadn’t thought about them getting soggy, yuck! However, me being the work around person, I would turn it upside down in a bowl. That’s if I wanted it. Not a fan of waffles or waffle cones. :O
Many thanks, Gary! It was easier than it looks. One of the things I learned from doing Zentangle, where you draw patterns based on step-by-step methods, is how to plan what comes first in the drawing versus what comes first in reality. It really helps simplify things.
