Ribbon candy must be a New England thing as we always had a box around for Christmas. And it was the last sweet stuff to be devoured, after the chocolate Santas and reindeer and apple pie. And always a tangerine or orange in the toe of our stockings. Wonderful memories.
Beautiful sketch of a sweet puppy. Our 14 year old shih tzu still hs her little blue teddy bear, flat as a pancake but the squeaker still works and I’m sure the sound reminds her of younger days. Our oldest grandson also still has the teddy we bought him in the hospital gift shop! But he took good care of it. These small things, like tree…[Read more]
Philippe nailed it: draw what YOU see – whether with the eye or the mind. Great rule for life! And with all those adventures running around in your head, we can hardly wait for them to appear in book form! i’v got some great grandchildren who will love the stories!
Love the flying mouse, he’s off and zooming away! And you have put down the foundations for a super animal story book with your doodles, maybe like a collection of fables like Aesop, with lessons for living the best of your life. Like putting your philosophy on paper with “wee beasties”. We are all waiting for that book….
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!
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?
Charles, thanks so much for sharing your work with us. You use the looseness of watercolor yet you plan it right from the beginning. Your result is so refreshing, evocative of the Impressionists and just as pleasant to look at. I love the surprise at the end: a 1950’s T’Bird!! Is that a 1955? And have you painted its portrait yet? Love it all! bob.c
Ah, love radios! I had one of the early transistor pocket radios as I walked along on my paper route. Also I built a no-battery mini transistor unit, a crystal set in Boy Scouts and received a shortwave receiver from a ham radio neighbor. And I am still a ham radio operator, contacting all ’round the world! Now that’s a blast!
And thanks to Sue and Charlie both, for showcasing the work here. Sue, your sense of subtle humor really shines – the illustrations have a sense of whimsey producing chuckles all the way along. I went over to your website to look at your other work and I’m still smiling. The cat sitting on the back of the sofa watching salmon swim by in the…[Read more]
Super sketch, bringing back wonderful memories listening to classical music and jazz with my parents and starting a lifelong love of all kinds of music. I kept my 1970’s big stereo receiver/amp with the turntable, cassette player/recorder, cd player and iPod input! But I still love the records I have held on to and play them now and then. The…[Read more]
Hey Charlie, another beautiful turtle – you do them so well. And the background really makes the whole scene sparkle, like the light glancing down from the surface. Q scene of quiet and peace, letting the world flow by! Love it!
Congrat’s, a wonderful accomplishment, 5 years! You have poured your soul into the doodles and the essays each day and it stays fresh and applicable to daily life. It’s a refreshing view of life that you give us each day and we so enjoy it. Thanks.
Great sketch of the two friends, off on an adventure. We humans might learn something from these two species, (although I wouldn’t recommend carrying around your friend on your head!) Cooperation often yields special results, so we can learn to work with those who are different from us.
Wonderful sketchbooks which serve as photo albums of your trips. But they are more than just a record of what you saw, they also hold your emotional response to what you saw. That’s the best part of a traveling sketchbook, you’ll rekindle how you felt about each scene! I love it!
Looks delicious, Charlie. When I tipped the laptop screen I thought the hot dog would roll away! I prefer red dogs, Tri-Sum chips and a Moxie! My kids enjoyed the Schoolhouse Rock shows too, and actually learned stuff. My daughter still likes to point out grammar errors to her kids, right from S/Rock! Misplaced antecedents and hanging participles,…[Read more]
A fast looking pup indeed! When we lived near Ft Myers FL we would see a lot of the greyhound rescue groups at Petco and they make super pets. The really strange thing about them is that they like to lean against you – it’s odd seeing a group of people with dogs leaning against their legs, as if the dogs had adopted us! If we hadn’t already…[Read more]
