For our prompt of “Tools” today, I immediately thought of art supplies, of course. Truly, they’re the only tools I know how to use outside of a hammer. And, I’m not allowed to use that very often for fear of
Day 10 – Tools, these are a few of my favorite mark making tools when I am painting abstracts in acrylics. I have discovered that I enjoy applying layers of paint to a panel, scraping or sanding parts off, repeating and in the end bringing the painting to a conclusion. Lately I am flipping back and forth between doing that and painting my…[Read more]
For our prompt of “Fossil” today, my mind immediately leapt to dinosaur fossils as those always fascinated me as a kid. I’ve always wondered what it might be like to one day discover a dinosaur fossil myself, and
Love the expression on this dog’s face. I loved searching for and finding fossils when I was a kid. Never did find a dinosaur but what a find that would be!! One of the many things I “wanted to be” when I grew up was an archaeologist….can you imagine being paid to dig in the dirt and find things?
Thanks so much, Mary! 😃💕 Oh wow… I can imagine that! Philippe was inspired to be a scientist because of Jurassic Park…. hehe… he doesn’t dig in the dirt to find things, but still similar and kind of cool! hehe
Wonderful Charlie! All my dogs ever found was an old leg of a deer which was nasty and of course they had to bring it home. It likely came from the neighbors. Dinosaur bones would have been much more fun.
Up to the age of 9, I lived in a house where the yard had some grave sized humps in it. I always imagined there was cool stuff buried under those humps. The most I ever did was dig at them with an old spoon, and found nothing because spoons are not the most efficient tool for digging up old mounds. If we had lived there longer, I’m sure I would have graduated to better equipment. As an adult I was involved in a stone age dig and we did a meter square hole that was over a meter and a half deep. We found a copper point, and an old fire pit. It was fantastic fun.
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Aww… I adore your memories… they’re so wonderful. Love that you put baby clothes on your pets, even if they didn’t. And it’s never too much to share!! Our childhood defines us in ways we sometimes forget… especially when we adore art… then we get the chance to never grow up… just grow through it all… and experience and adore each moment!
