For our prompt of “Shorebird” today, I sketched a little family of piping plovers. I was watching videos of the little baby chicks running across the shoreline and it was super cute. They seemed so curious and
I really like waking up to the daylight and I’m not looking forward to the dark, gloomy days of winter. But first there is fall, with late summer weather cooling to crisp autumn winds and bright autumn nights. I do enjoy those!
Hey Charlie those soups sound sooo goooddd I wish Phillippe would post a few recipes. Yum. I love the fall too but then comes The Ugly which even in my Canadian Okanagan hot spot is not so cute. A broken leg did however teach me not to racewalk in a blizzard. Let’s enjoy the long mellow fragrant afternoons. Soon you’ll be sketching Rudolph et al!
Lovely painting…and I don’t relish autumn as it signals to me winter is also coming…Yet the fall with all its color and freshness, like spring…is a good reminder that there are some things you can count on to happen no matter what else is going on in the world…Reassuring to say the least…Enjoy your day off and try to remember to recharge your batteries as you can’t doing anything running on empty!! God bless😊
I adore your little piping plovers! Have you ever seen that cartoon with the pp running with the waves? Here’s a preview.
You’re right, fall foods are good. I’m already thinking of chili and scalloped potatoes. But summer didn’t stick around nearly long enough for me. I was telling a friend that two more months of it would be about perfect.
I went for a ride to our local nature reserve on Sunday morning and was watching shorebirds in the flesh, or feather. I love the Autumn. My morning cycle to work is getting a bit chilly already. Great doodle.
We have Plovers on the Oregon coast. They are fun to watch, running back and forth. I am so ready for a change in the weather, unfortunately no cooler days or rain. Only thing returning is an unusual high wind storm this afternoon. Not good for all our fires.
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Yeah, anything really cold down there would get a bit weird. Even where my mom lives in north Texas will shut down when it snows! And true, when you get that cuddle partner those seasons will be different indeed. 😉 And yes! I watched some of Oliver… it’s just the cutest!!
Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 Aww that’s wonderful that you got to experience an NYC fall. We have very similar weather where I live. It’s lovely in the autumn. Those sound like beautiful memories indeed!!
Thanks Gary, this one is my favourite too. I decided to try my hand at this technique upon reading a book by Bill Buchanan on painting expressive nudes. Apparently the reed pen is what Matisse and Picasso also favoured for this kind of sketch. I can only agree!
For as long as I can remember stories and the telling of them have been so important to me as they are an important part of my heritage as well.

For as long as I can remember stories and the telling of them have been so important to me as they are an important part of my heritage as well. Today\'s art is reflective of the story of the perfect heart. A young man was making fun of the torn up heart of one of the elders saying how his own heart was so perfect; flawless. The elder told the young man that the condition of his heart was due to the pains and joys in his life. How he had also given parts of It to other. All these experiences left wear and tear and also empty spots. The young man understood and realized this elder had the perfect heart. He took a piece of his heart to share with the elder seeing that his though, having a space was becoming more beautiful.
This brings back memories of a gorgeous photo that a coworker had on the wall of the office we shared. Her husband had taken it in New Mexico. Going up in one of these is still on my bucket list. Thanks Everett for triggering that memory.
Many thanks, Gary! It’s a silent tribute to my late father who was very fond of Cross pens . It was a rare occasion when he gifted me one of his when I got a good grade in A’Level English Literature a very long time ago.
