“That’s So Sweet!” My alto ego is “The Jam Lady”. If it doesn’t move I’m planning to turn it into jam or jelly. How about Lilac Blossom (that was a pain as there can be no green parts included), rose petal, Black Forrest (cherry, brandy and chocolate), Strawberry Daiquiri, Hawthorn, Rowanberry. I made cucumber jelly once, only once. It was disgu…[Read more]
Speaking of new stuff, I have received a couple of sweet gifts from Cheap Joe’s through Charlie’s good offices. Sweet though the teeny, tiny palette is it was the large box it came in that gave me joy. Have you read the warning signs on his packaging? I tried to add some pictures but I lost everything. Maybe I can share them with you on Facebook.…[Read more]
Thanks for an interesting article Sandra. I too love the sheep but was intrigued with the idea of using coloured gell pens to enhance watercolours. I plan to give that a try. I do use micron pens to add a little something. Would love to try the Stonehenge paper. (I used to live up the road from its name sake.) Which has no relevance to the…[Read more]
This one includes Canadians but I’m too late. Ah well. I agree, sometimes when I’m walking the back lane with my dog I notice a plant and find myself giving it a paint colour. The paint I find myself dipping into the most is Moon Glow I love it for shadows. “Paint Life In Color!” anyway. Hugs Charlie.
I have a 3 and half year old great grandson and I’m reliving all kinds of imaginary adventures. We went on a grand rhubarb hunt the other day armed with scissors and a special trug to carry home the loot. Today he made a river and waterfalls in the middle of his mothers garden while I was minding him. Mud all over his face, hands pants and shoes,…[Read more]
A pink water colour marker came today. Beautifully packed in a special folder, inside a specially designed envelope, inside a padded envelope. It was like one of those Russian dolls. There was also $9:50 in UAS postage paid. My goodness what a gift. Thank you to all involved. So exciting to get interesting mail. I will try it against the Letraset…[Read more]
I’m enjoying the word pictures you paint Charlie. I think I’m going to have to paint a snail today. Although, growing up in England where they are a real pest didn’t endear them to me. Here on the prairies we only see slugs (much harder to love). As an aside, it was the Roman invaders who brought snails to England as a food source, I think they…[Read more]
I’d like to try these Windsor & Newton water colour markers. I have a some by Letraset and I don’t find them easy to use. Fine as an accent but they seem to lack the softness of a brush and paint. The colour range is limited too. But “I Love Color!”.
