Thanks for the excellent macaws. I was stopped cold by your note on the relative lifespans of our animal friends. Someone who takes on a parrot as a pet is looking at a lifelong partnership– all Your life long! Dogs unfortunately have much shorter lives and i once hard a child explain why: he said that dogs have happy lives because all the bad…[Read more]
That is one tall baby, and handsome too! And thanks for pointing out the importance of daydreaming to one’s success in life. The best thoughts often come when you’re just sitting there and “gathering wool!”
Love the aerial view of the snowman and the artist’s ability to pul many images into one painting that really clicks. And the process of preserving puzzles as works of art hits home. My wife’s late uncle was a puzzle fanatic and he would use Modpodge to coat and and glue them together. Later in life he shared many of these with relatives and we…[Read more]
That’s a true Charlie Brown Christmas tree! What wonderful, warm memories watching the film each year with my family. We have a few little decorations that we cherish, one a snowman my daughter made in the first grade. He is a toilet paper tube with cotton balls glued to it, and his face is made of bits of colored construction paper and glued on…[Read more]
Every trickster needs a rest now and then, I love that . Yet, there is still is a little gleam in his eye and a smirk on his face. He is ready to go. He reminds me of one of the foxes we have here in our community, living in the wooded area behind our mailbox. They have a glow about them this time of year, especially when running thru the snow…[Read more]
Hope you really enjoyed the cobbler, it looks delish! We wiped out the apple pie and are now working on the pineapple pie – getting ready to begin decorating. And it’s time to pull out my favorite Christmas album, the Christmas Revels. We are expecting a snowstorm Sunday pm thru Tuesday am so we’ll be in the holiday spirit, about 1/2 foot deep or…[Read more]
Hey, that looks just like the flock of turkeys that just ran thru my back yard! Here in central Mass. we have lots of wildlife including turkeys and they are fun to watch. But even more fun to eat! Our dinner was a bit less intimate than yours; we had a total of seven, and it was wonderful time. And as you have pointed out, memories of the…[Read more]
A fine pineapple, good enough to eat! I’m sitting here checking out all the detail on it, and enjoying the aroma from the kitchen of the pineapple pie my wife is baking! All of these sensory inputs triggering our memories of holidays past, and melding them all together into a pleasant melange. Have a marvelous Thanksgiving and the best to your…[Read more]
That’s a great sundae, and I notice the waffle cone motif. I think you did eventually get a real waffle cone maker, yes? This week as we prepare for the Big Feast, we also plan for all the visits of folks we haven’t seen in a while. Hand them a slice of pie, give them a kiss and a hug and send them on their way! Thank the Lord and pass the gravy!…[Read more]
That’s one happy panda, taking a break from chewing! I enjoyed the reference to Li’l Abner, one of my favorite cartoon strips along with Gasoline Alley. And that’s the great thing about memory, how we can relive events in the way we want, not how it actually happened! Not sure if I would want to go back and repeat those days but it works in one’s mind!
Love the cardinals, we have a few pairs that stay around for the winter, joining the chickadees and tufted titmice at our feeder. They compete with a few hardy robins for the few remaining foods that nature affords them. Watching them somehow survive provides us lessons for our own lives, to live in the moment and make the best of what we have.
My goodness, what beautiful work! I really like the ink wash technique; I can almost see the colors in my mind. The artistic talents of your whole family come through your brush and pen! Please continue to post on your Instagram and here at Doodlewash.
Great sketch, with the eyes wide with terror. And you have hit upon the one key to getting things done, to bypass procrastination: do the difficult tasks first! Dive in and attack the job you fear the most, which will be so small when you look back at it in time’s rear mirror and see it completed.
Charlie, we all so enjoy zooming around with you on your ride, stopping along the way to observe interesting things and sketch them. The dog eyeing the macarons thru the table reminds me of a trick i used to play on our dog: we had a glass dining room table and she sat under it, waiting for something to drop. Nothing ever made it thru the table,…[Read more]
