For our prompt of “Flight” today, the things that came to mind were flying on a plane as well as flying birds. This made me wonder about flightless birds and how they might enjoy a chance to sail through the sky.
Charlie! Brilliant — a chartered plane for birds! I love it.
I love to come home after being out too especially last week masked and safe on a bus where not all riders wore those and then to the mall where people think it’s okay to disregard pandemic rules. Thank God I didn’t catch anything and my new cell phone better last til the end of the pandemic.
I love the way you are expressing your imagination through your art! I’m going to be so disappointed the next time I fly, and don’t have flightless birds among the passengers. Though I wouldn’t want to be next to an ostrich – they probably peck at your head the entire flight!
I really feel sorry for the flight crew though – imagine the cleanup after these characters deplane! Can you picture Phineas on that flight? Maybe as a steward?? He may have more fun than in the Pet Motel!
This painting made me smile 🙂 and like yourself I would have been going overseas right about now…not possible until maybe next year..a day at a time..and although i do like being home most days..I do miss traveling to break up the monotony of being in one place…”sigh” hopefully soon..thanks for a great post!!😊
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 So today much be your birthday then! Happy Birthday my friend! Glad you’re getting out and taking a scenic drive! As long as we’re all okay, then everything is okay… that ‘s how I see it!
Thanks, Karen. I love the Gulf of Mexico and when I’m doing the market out at the beach on Sundays (haven’t since March) I usually get to watch the sun rise. I painted this from a photo I took looking west at the Gulf and the western sky was reflecting the sunrise….didn’t scan very well so lost that pretty sky.
For our prompt of “Sport” today, I wasn’t sure what to sketch as I’ve never really played or been interested in sports. Though, I did sometimes bat around tennis balls with my best friend in high school. He was
Pretty cute. I tried tennis when I was young. Not for me. I’m better at badminton. Lol! I’m better at croquet too. And bowling. In fact for my gym credit in college I had bowling, badminton, and running. The one thing I was really good at sportswise was biking. I put on many miles in my 30s. I miss it a lot.
As I sit, I am with all the family I can be with at one time. We are so grateful for the new normal! I am keeping my eyes wide open to enjoy everything about them!
I have a question about posting work- how do you photograph green? When I post something painted green, it looks so blah! And not really green! Your colors are appearing vivid and beautiful!
Hi Charlie, I am not swift with sports — and I am Canadian where sports is big. As far as I am concerned they should just pick up that stupid football etc and hand it to the guy who wants it so badly and be done with it. Yeesh already.
Like your kitty cat, winding up with a wicked backhand! Her markings remind me of our last cat, Killer. She was super-mouser and didn’t like chipmunks either…… She never came home one night…. She was a part of the family though and we miss her. It is all about family, isn’t’ it?
This weekend has been pretty dreary here in Oregon, with air quality the worst in the world. But the fires are being contained, and the air quality is supposed to improve bit by bit this coming week, so things are looking up. I haven’t felt inspired to paint much, but I did get a little done. It will help when the sky isn’t a sickly smoky yellow anymore.
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Oh wow! Pee-Wee sounds like he was perfectly spoiled! hehe I agree… I think this time has given us a chance to focus only on what’s most important in life. And yes, to Phineas… that just means food! lol
For our prompt of “Harvest” today, I made a little sketch of two little harvest mice taking a break in a sunflower. I’ve been spending my Saturday as I always do, which means I’ve been relaxing all day long. Well,
Adorable Charlie and I’m glad that you got the steam shower disabled. 😉 I had day one of our group’s virtual art tour today and had one sale through my website. A repeat customer so I now have a collector. 😉 It was nice to see that everything worked, website, payment system, tour discount and notifications. When you build it yourself you wonder. The show that I would have tried things out at was canceled in May. Have a happy Sunday!
I never understood why Jessica Fletcher wasn’t avoided like the plague. You’d have to know there was going to be a murder any place she was. Although, I’m (barely) old enough to be your mother, I think we both came from a generation that placed little value on learning the ‘handy’ skills. I suspect those skills will be highly valued in the world to come. That and recognizing that you should stay away from people like Jessica Fletcher!
Sounds good to me, Charlie. I like to fix stuff around the place too but somehow it just doesn’t turn out the way my brain knows it should. It has to leave my hands first and then … oh oh. Sigh. I am glad nobody got electrocuted with that shower — meaning if it has a fuse then it has to have electricity someplace. Have a happy Sunday too. Plumbers know all about that stuff.
My Joe is a fantastic fix it guy. The only thing he doesn’t do is propane appliances. My stove is a gas stove so if something goes wrong, we have to call a repair guy. I have told Jim he’s in the wrong business. He needs to be the Guy! Let’s face it, everyone needs a guy they can call to do stuff. Want to replace a light fixture? Joe’s your guy. Need your new computer and printer set up? Joe’s your guy. See what I mean? Every one needs a guy.
Cozy little guys. So sweet, even for mice. :/ I spent the day sketching/painting. I also sketched a mouse for my Disney prompt. Mind is doing the laundry. 😉 I guess one could consider that “harvesting” Bahaha. My hubby is an all around fix it guy, thank goodness since we live in a 60 year old house. It is like when a car gets to that age when it starts to cost more than fix it. However with a home, you can’t always just get a new one!
Thanks so much, Lori! 😃💕 So true! Our house is hitting that stage where things are starting to all go weird at once. We’ll get a fix it guy here to help us fill in the gaps. hehe Our car is actually at that stage, but so far, it’s still cheaper to fix it than to get a new one! 😉
Beautiful harvest mice! My the things you learn about on doodlewash! I didn’t know harvest mice existed until you and Sandra, I think showed them to me. I admire your conquest of the steam shower I am working up the nerve to dismantle the shower head to get the damn flow restricter out and if that works I may take on the plug in my freezer drain. I pick up my handy person tips from YouTube as my love is definitely not the Fixit guy and he hates me to call the guy as then he will be exposed oh well wish me luck
Lovely painting and story 🙂 I am glad you had a big success(I am house challenged as well, luckily husband is not LOL)
and were able to enjoy your weekend! Right now he is in process of fixing our leaky sink, pipes sink and all. I retreated to my art desk 😊
For our prompt of “Dress Up” today, my mind immediately went back to when I was a little kid and would try on my father’s clothes. This was equal parts wanting to be a big kid and wanting to be just like my dad.
Charlie you are not alone. My mother was 5″10″ and one of her brothers was 6’7″. They would dress him in a top hat and put him on a unicycle for the MayDays parade every year. I am the family squirt. In those days they didn’t have clothing for tall people so arm and leg lengths were always cropped. Oops I haven’t drawn my sketch yet. I will do that right now.
The one aunt I had on my father’s side was quite tall at 5’9″ for a woman of the day, especially since she was Scottish/Irish. My poor uncle was so jealous of her at 5’5″ (as was my grandfather). Both of her daughters were tall, so I really hoped I might be. My 5’3″ height was one of the biggest disappointments of my life. I don’t think much about it these days, unless I’m trying to get something off the top shelf at the store. Then I curse my genes a little bit!
Wonderful Charlie! This made me remember two things. My cousin would put doll dresses on her cat which was tolerated for a short while before running off to hide. The other was trying on my mom’s fancy dresses that she had before I was born. They made me feel like a princess until I was caught which never went well.
Some days I keep my night shirt on all day. Fine except when someone comes to the door. I have surprised a few folks with my casual Friday attire. When we first moved here there was no one around and I picked beans in my pjs!. Now I have four news houses near and I have to watch myself.
Well Charlie , I can tell you the weather down here can be different! Sometimes at parties it rains beer and pretzels on people my height😆 That’s why I don’t go to the same ol’ parties either. As a person perpetually hemming and rolling sleeves I have to admit a bit of vertical envy growing up😉 That little kitten has a look of wonder, so he needs blue glasses, he wants to grow up and be you!
Thanks so much! 😃💕 Hehe… I decided to make this Little Charlie who wasn’t wearing glasses yet. And I bet the weather down there is perfectly lovely. Whatever we actually are is always the loveliest thing indeed!
Ah, he brought a giggle to me this morning. Something I could use this morning. We woke to fog and cooler temps this morning, so that is good. The smoke is still very bad. I guess they are saying our air quality is the worse in the world right now. Telling us to not go outside, unless necessary. We’ve had a lot of practice these past months! Rain still not until Monday, but the winds have shiffted from the west and that is what they needed. It’s blowing the fires away from residential areas. This weekend can’t get over any faster.
I too used to dress up for fun especially the makeup part. today no makeup low hair maintenance. one size does not fit all..I was the petite one not so today. In any case I think it is great we are different, makes for a better world…and yep those parties were dull and boring thank goodness I don’t go to them today either..And like yourself I have always been a little different than those around me..and I like it!😊
Aww I think you’re perfect just as you are, Marisela! 😃💕 Yeah, there’s no need for a cookie cutter approach in life… it’s way too boring. And that’s wonderful that you take after your grandmother. She must have been lovely as well!
Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 That’s a lovely way to look at things. Yeah… being tall at a party is not a good thing at all. SO tough to hide. And I think good things DO come in small packages, so you should always celebrate that!
Absolutely lovely, Charlie! I’m quite the opposite, height-wise, so, I’d swim in one-size-fits-all anything. Parties—I look forward to fun gatherings with eclectic, diverse, and creative friends, once again, the dance music, laughter, and food!
