Charlie, I swear if you weren’t a 6ft tall, blonde haired, blue eyed boy, a decade (if not two😉) younger, I’d swear we were separated at birth! I guess I remember a few things about school but mostly art and writing. I can tell you a good year from the-umm-others, by who my teachers were and if creativity reigned. Purely “academic” years are lost…[Read more]
What a beautiful vignette! Glorious detail and color Charlie, I think you may have enjoyed this one! I especially love little mice stories. My mom told me little mice lived in my ears, so I wouldn’t get water in their house or my ears in the bath. (This explains so much! 🤦♀️😁😆)
Well, I had one dog that would curl up in the warm laundry…but no good at folding! We haven’t gone far from home, but we can dream about joy riding. When I had a community garden plot, I dreamed about tractors to do my cultivating for me-all 200 square feet! ;-D 😀 I am just loving the color in this piece (as usual!) I have to be more brave!
Adorable hammies! Definitely a healthy snack and enough to share! I like the long walk in the same couple of circles, but my mind and heart work out painting and doodling are great meditation! PS I am getting rid of my “cast-away-do” on Saturday!
Charlie I’m so grateful you remind us: F-U-N, fun, the whole point of creativity! I love your penguins because I think they have fun personalities like all your critters. Their stories are forming in front of us. Especially during these times when lots of stories are not fun-at all-I need to be reminded of just living and enjoying it! Thank you…[Read more]
Charlie this fox reminds me of late 60s-early 70s art. I think it’s simply perfect! I had a genius art teacher that taught me the significance of line drawing. I’m just learning water color (if you don’t count K-6)
and I love them together. When I’ve been seeking out my hidden treasures of illustration, I realize how much of my childhood art…[Read more]
Oddly enough,in this odd bit of time, I have been seeking some hidden treasures in old series (The Saint, Peanuts) and my children’s book collection. I was inspired to art because of that rich history of illustration and literature. I love the backgrounds in “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.” I’m just old enough for some treasures to be…[Read more]
Another Charles! What a genius! I love light in art, (I will keep trying) and your work is filled with it. A worthy obsession! Thank you for sharing your creations, thoughts and journey, great inspiration for me and so many! Safe travels!
Charlie when I was little, I had my own language (as attested by my mom) and although I loved my tiny grey elephant I dragged about by an ear, I could not say elephant. I called him “Phuntan.” Even though we are both several decades past that mispronunciation, we still call em like see em! 🐘
Sandra, such a nice review! They looked like a lot of fun! What are your thoughts on refilling such a nice size travel palette. Are those almost full pan size?
Your rhino is an icon! If a rhino can be lovely, this one is! Thanks for all the work that went into all that fun!
Charlie I’ve spent all my adult life in the school of hugs! I’m not especially a hugger even so and during flu season I say, “I love you from afar!”, several times a week. However, seeing your separated bunnies made me well up😥 Ok, I’m just gonna say it, I miss hugging my loved ones-and even the odd stranger at this point! I hope and pray we all…[Read more]
Oh, I have a saying about my head when things get out of control, “The squirrels in my head are loose and they have machetes!” Look how well behaved yours is! But now I understand why I never quite get what they’re yelling about-they have their mouths full!🐿🐿🐿
Great ‘peli’ Charlie! My husband and I had the privilege of rescuing one stuck in fishing line, a long time ago in Mexico. I was way more afraid of that clacking beak than he was of me! They are gorgeous when they ride air currents upwelling from the ocean over our beaches. If you and Phillippe make it out to Cali,stand on the cliffs over any…[Read more]
Yes Charlie, we’re dreaming! For now we too are enjoying your take on the Northern lights! (Not trying to figure out which bug spray is least toxic but will deter mosquitos the size if B-52s) Somehow I believe this delay in departures will make the places we head more precious and being together with our loved ones RIGHT NOW something we never…[Read more]
OK yay! I had to read a few comments before I shared about my Toot-a-loop(?) radio! I wanted to be sure some else actually carried theirs around with them too😆 Mine was a funky off-centered donut contraption that had to be twisted into an s-shape so you could see the dial. I listened to the local radio station K-EZY, which was right down the…[Read more]
OK Charlie, I have not heard the words, “BIG, FAT and HONKING” in a sentence together outside of my family in decades!😄😆🤣 It took me a minute to stop giggling and add-we would only use that in reference to something we love as much as my mom’s apple cake or something so unbelievable like the spider hanging over the sidewalk that made me an hour…[Read more]
