For our prompt of “Cherries” today, I sketched a bit of ice cream in a waffle bowl with a cherry on top. Several months ago, Philippe and I were shopping at HomeGoods and I saw a miraculous appliance known as a
This looks so yummy Charlie! There is a farm store up the road that is selling frozen gelato in interesting flavors and a soft served yogurt shop downtown that posts yummy looking treats on Facebook. One of these days I am going to get a treat!
This looks so darn good I’m tempted to go out and buy one of those waffle cup makers!!! OK, I won’t because there isn’t space in the cupboards for anything else but it is tempting. Funny, I never fail to find room for new art supplies. hmmm.
I’m with Philippe. Usually those specialty machines are impossible to put together or clean properly and never make anything as tasty as you expect. On the other hand – a mini donut factory? There’s a flea market in Florida that makes (or did) fresh donut holes as you watch. You specify what topping you want and they are the most decadent food on the face of the earth. I allow myself since I only go to Florida once or twice a year, if that. But. Ooh. To be able to make something like that at home. In no time at all, I’d be as round as a donut myself!
After working in a job where I made real fried donuts with a donut making machine, I have to admit that on more than one occasion I have spent time looking at the machines thinking I would like to own one at home. Ridiculous since each hopper of dough made in the neighborhood of 60 donuts. But still, now I’ve got the urge to check eBay in case someone has a used one that I should give a home! This is all your fault! !
This is so cute! I hadn’t thought about them getting soggy, yuck! However, me being the work around person, I would turn it upside down in a bowl. That’s if I wanted it. Not a fan of waffles or waffle cones. :O
Many thanks, Gary! It was easier than it looks. One of the things I learned from doing Zentangle, where you draw patterns based on step-by-step methods, is how to plan what comes first in the drawing versus what comes first in reality. It really helps simplify things.
For our prompt of “Sage” today, I sketched a bit of sage blooming. I love fresh herbs this time of year and though Philippe and I don’t have a proper yard, we have grown herbs in pots. I say that in the past tense
Beautiful Sage, Charlie. We are so fortunate; our vet has a fully equipped mobile unit and pulls up in front of our house to take care of our 3 kitties. She’s the most caring and wonderful vet…we just love her.
Wonderful sage in bloom Charlie! I remember taking my Irish setter to the vets years ago only to be told that I had to lift him up on the table which was not an easy task. Our next vet would get down on the floor and met on his level. Much better.
My dr has suggested the same for me…I haven’t taken him up on it yet LOL and since being on lockdown I know I have gained a few more…but now that weather is better I hope to get out more..maybe..thanks and your sage looks wonderful!
A number of years ago we were vacationing in South Dakota and I found some wild sage growing by our camp ground, so I picked some to bring home. Later in the car I started sneezing and my eyes were watering and I was feeling pretty punky. That’s when I discovered I’m allergic to sage.
I grow regular basil, Thai basil, and parsley in my garden. Even though I cook a lot, I don’t tend to use many fresh herbs except cilantro.
Hello friends and fellow artists, my name is Manish and I am from Maharashtra, India. I would like to introduce myself and about my art journey with a beautiful quote which has always inspired me. “The creative a
Your journey inspires me. You’re discovering and expressing what you know, what you continue to learn, and love through your watercolors–in fresh, childlike wonder. They are simply inviting and beautiful to see. As a fellow Asian immigrant, I know the parental pressure for us to acquire a certain profession, because they wanted only something better for us in life. Your engineering skills certainly are evident in your clean lines, wonderful shapes and colors in your urban landscapes. Stay well!
For our prompt of “Bluebell” today, I wasn’t sure what to make, so I just let my inner child quickly doodle whatever first came to mind. Apparently, Little Charlie had snails on the brain so this was the purely
Your sliders sound absolutely fantastic! Hubby went out and got us a huge decadent breakfast, so I’m not even sure I’ll have dinner. Sheltering in place or not, there are still pleasures to enjoy and home can be a paradise indeed.
I love the whimsiness of this Charlie! I hope your indoor picnic is fun. It was leftover Thai this evening for us after what turned out to be a quiet day. The sun didn’t come out from behind the clouds until I was warming up the leftovers so no outdoor work for us. Too buggy without the sun. I’m back to being home alone this week so my intention is to get caught up on chores. Any hopefully some painting. Stay safe!
Our neighbors went fishing this morning and invited us up for beer battered bluegills for dinner. Good thing too because Joe went to pick up the groceries I ordered online and the salmon I was planning on fixing for dinner was one of the things that was not available. I did score some rum raisin ice cream though, so I’m pretty happy with that.
I like snails. I have a glass one with a light in it that used to sit in my kitchen as a night light. Now that I think about it, I don’t know what happened to it. I wonder if Joe broke it and tossed it away so I would not see the evidence. I’m going to have to talk to him about it.
Bluebell Wood-Did you know that according to folklore, bluebells ring at daybreak to wake the fairies? Probably not true, lol, but it’s fun to wonder what bluebells ringing might sound like. #doodlewashMay2020 #Bluebells #@Hahnemühle_USA small

For our prompt of “Golden” today, I chose to sketch a golden pocket watch. I love watches like these with exposed clockwork, though I hadn’t yet sketched one like this. Indeed, that’s likely because it’s a bit of
Gorgeous watch Charlie! My younger brother was given my grandfather’s when he passed away. My brother was very young. I wonder if he still has it.
Beautiful weather here today so we got out and did yard work. Nice to be outside and we are fortunate that the neighbors are not close by so social distancing is not an issue. Oh, the baby goats have moved in next door. Looking forward to seeing more than just a glimpse of them.
It makes me a little sad when I was the big effect movies anymore. I remember the total sense of awe I had when I first saw Star Wars, and the first Jurassic Park – almost like being right there with the dinosaurs. It’s hard to get that same feeling, even when watching on the big screen. Children growing up today may never have that same feeling.
My husband, Joe, is a big guy, 6’2″ , with big hands. My dad was 6’4″ ‘ also with big hands. Yet both of them gravitated to working with tiny things. Joe works with electronics, and dad worked with machinery and carved birds as a hobby. It is kind of mind blowing to see the tiny things they deal with. It would make me crazy!! 😂 I’ll stick with my big old 10 inch chef’s knife and size 18 paint brush, thank you very much.
Wow, beautiful job on the watch! The gold case is especially lovely. I’m also intrigued by mechanical things, like my Olivetti typewriter, purchased in 1968 for college. Also my simple gold watch with leather wristband, purchased in Switzerland in1972. They are both simple, beautifully designed, items that still work!
