For our final prompt of “Sunrise” this month, I made a quick little doodle of a rooster and then sort of made up a fast and loose background of what I remember from my childhood times on the farm. It’s more the
Love this, Charlie!! There is nothing quite like the sound of a rooster at sunrise and when we first moved to Florida our neighbor’s rooster sang us a tune every morning. I love the sound; it reminds me of childhood mornings on my grandparent’s farm. November did zoom right by and I swear we’re in some sort of time warp…can Christmas really only be 25 days away??
Charlie yesterday sunrise came with a rose coloured sky so I ripped open the balcony door and flashed my cell. Yes I remember rooster call in our little coal town in BC Canada’s Kootenays which reminds me I have to get back to my memoir and get some work done.
He’s a beautiful rooster. It’s been a while since I painted one. I might have to do one this month. December is always too fast. Quick on the heels of my favorite holiday of Thanksgiving, I have a December birthday then Xmas and New Years Eve. Plus I’m quite into celebrating the winter solstice because the days start getting longer and I’m all for looking forward to spring in December.
2020 has seemed to go on forever, and yet it’s hard to believe it’s almost over. It’s funny how much importance we place on such time-keeping, since it is totally a man-made invention. Part of our need to have that feeling of starting fresh, I think.
For our prompt of “Scarf” today, I ended up with a couple of bunnies cuddling up to keep warm in the snow. I actually only wear scarves when it’s super cold outside, or simply because I rather like the look. It
Adorable Charlie! I’m glad that you got your tree decorated. We actually got outside for a bit of last minute yard work as it was sunny and in the 50s. Our yard has never looked this tidy. Maybe we will plant some flowers in the Spring.
I love scarves! I have some beautiful ones that I wear outside whenever it’s cool enough. I used to have a drawer full of dress scarves that I wore to work, but since I retired, I passed most of them on to friends. I think men who wear scarves look very dashing. That’s probably the Anglophile in me coming out. When I was still weaving on big looms I made a few scarves of my own design. I should dig those out and use them. Styling!
Yay for Styling! 😃💕 Yeah, I adore the look of scarves, but in use they make my neck too hot nearly all of the time. hehe… I run warm so I never need quite that much to protect me. But I’ll wear them because they DO look so cool!
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Okay, so first, you totally need to get that box of Lego and just play! I adore Lego… our house is full of it, and it’s just super fun to DO! And I agree… I want the 200 crayon set, but I don’t like using crayons so it would only be a trophy! And if nothing else, definitely get the Fischer Price Little people nativity… it is so cute and wonderful!
Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 Oh your Doodlewash game is so fun! I have to admit that I use colors rather intuitively and sometimes just splash in colors for the fun of it. But yes! more color always makes for a less flat appearance. So it’s fun and productive. I’ve learned that more color is literally the key, so play and try unexpected colors to add as well. 😉
Did you know that the Eurasier is a dog breed that was created only 50 years ago, -bred from crosses between the Wolf Spitz, the Chow Chow, and, later, the Samoyed? #DoodlewashNovember2020 prompt: Teddy Bear, because I think odds are high that this puppy is named Teddy, Bear or Teddy Bear! @Hahnemühle_USA Eurasier Puppy – Gouache on H…[Read more]
For our prompt of “Teddy Bear” today, I made a little sketch of a dog cuddled up with one. I’ve loved teddy bears ever since I was a little kid and still have the very first teddy bear I ever owned. The bear sits
I’ve still got my old teddy too. He was a gift when I was six months old. He’s lost all his fur, and his nose and one eye were lost and replaced with stitching, and he has surgery scars where Mom had to replace all this stuffing. But he’s still retained all the love and memories I bestowed on him as a child. Everyone should have an old teddy.
Mine was a stuffed dog with flowers all over it, and another dog that was a wiener dog. I’m positive there were more stuffed animals, but I just can’t remember any. I was quite attached to my Barbie and my Troll. I had a baby doll that I played with a lot too. !
So sweet. His eyes say it all. My Christmas decor is taking on a laid back look this year. No one is able to come over and see things, so I’ve lost my mojo. Saying that however, I still have more than most households. 😉 I’ll finish up a few things today and then start on the gift making!
Beautiful sketch of a sweet puppy. Our 14 year old shih tzu still hs her little blue teddy bear, flat as a pancake but the squeaker still works and I’m sure the sound reminds her of younger days. Our oldest grandson also still has the teddy we bought him in the hospital gift shop! But he took good care of it. These small things, like tree ornaments that we’ve kept forever, bring those warm memories back to us and renew the love for family and friends. Thanks, Charlie, for what you do!
Thanks so much, Bob! 😃💕 Love that your shih tzu still has her teddy bear from her youth! Yeah, the things that bring back memories are the best of all. Glad this brought back wonderful memories for you!
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Love that you have always loved paper at first! And looking like a teddy bear when you laugh? That’s definitely the cutest! And yes! I remember that Taco Bell dog… wonderful that Monster had one. Phineas had a duckie that we replaced around 13 times before we finally gave up! hehe
