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!
For our prompt of “Eggplant” today, I doodled a few of them hanging on the vine from my imagination. I love fresh eggplant, though we primarily only have it in ratatouille, which also makes me think of one of my
Beautiful eggplants, Charlie. Summer has arrived and I figured it’s now or not until next January for the last chicken pot pie that was in the freezer…speaking of comfort food. It did taste delicious but it’s definitely time to change the menu.
I love the look and feel of eggplant, but in the end, I just don’t care to eat it much. When I was a little girl we had a neighbor named Madeleine. She was Italian and liked to cook Italian food. I’m guessing that eggplant was hard to come by in our small town grocery store, so every summer she grew her own. I have a strong memory of those big purple fruit looking ready to burst at the seams. I think that I’m a gardener because of Madeleine and her aubergine.
Eggplant Explosion-Did you know eggplants have more nicotine than any other plant? Why, you’d only have to eat 20-40 lbs in one sitting in order to get the same effect as smoking a cigarette! Thai eggplants are white, which I think means they most deserve the name ‘egg’plant. #doodlewashMay2020 @Hahnemühle_USA Eggplant Explosion – Daniel Smit…[Read more]
