For our prompt of “Coconut” today, I couldn’t decide between a mature coconut and a young one, so I just doodled both and threw in an orchid for a touch more color. I actually have the day off from work tomorrow,
Fantastic bit of the tropics Charlie! We missed getting snow by a few miles today and just got heavy rain thank you! The northern half of New Hampshire and all of Maine got heavy wet snow. I managed to get home from the grocery store before the rain began but that meant leaving my house about 6:30 am. I hope not to go back for a week. I did not know that glasses fogged up when you try to breath with a facemask on. I have a new appreciation for those that have to wear them all the time. Enjoy your day off from working at home. 😉
Tropical break..nice idea! Love it! Beautiful food and flower sketching! Some of the trees in India have a grand place in Hindu and Buddhist iconography and folk art. Yes, the coconut tree is one of them
Every Sunday I exchange emails with an old friend of mine. She still works, and I’m retired. She writes these long notes about things going on with her, and her job, and kids. As for me, especially in winter, I’m lucky to get down a paragraph because nothing ever happens here in the winter at my house. She assures me that she dreams of leading a life as boring as mine.😂😂
I remember a time back in elementary school when my art teacher asked us to raise our hand if we enjoyed making things. Well….my hand is still up! I’m Tina Folks and I grew up on Long Island, New York and I am a f
Painted this watercolour card for my husband’s birthday. We both love wildlife and have taken to watching YouTube live webcams of racoons and possums…
this makes me laugh

For our prompt of “Bird Feeder” today, I decided to sketch one being enjoyed by a couple of birds. Indeed, in these times, I realize now it equally looks a bit like they are social distancing. But, today is rather
Fantastic Charlie! It is beginning to look like Spring is coming. Flowers are starting to sprout. The woodchuck has claimed the space under the deck and little chuckies should be peeking out soon. They are so fun to watch and I spend a good deal of time in my studio so I will be able to watch them grow. Glad that you got the peaches and flour. I have to venture out soon.
It is important that we share and spread the happiness with each other as much as possible these days. I found out last night that my niece committed suicide on Monday. The number of suicides is up with all the craziness going on, so you never know, that ‘Hi, how are you’ or ‘I’m thinking about you’ might make all the difference.
I had a yellow-bellied sapsucker in the yard a week ago. First time ever. They are in the woods, but never in my front yard maple tree. A friend of mine pos some pictures she got of loons which are migrating through now. They spend a day or two on Madison lakes before heading north for breeding and babies. When I lived way up north, I had a place on Lake Julia and there was a pair of loons on the lake every year. The loon yodel is one of my favorite sounds on earth. It’s one thing I miss living down here in the flat lands.
I had to look up that bird!! And then realized… it’s a woodpecker!! 😃💕We have those here! I love seeing them, but wow that sound! You just hope it’s not happening on your house! hehe I think a loon yodel sounds much better!
Aww… I adore that story, Sharon!! Thanks so much for sharing! 😃💕 That’s so beautiful that you got to enjoy tradition if only virtually. And yes, thank goodness for technology to help us connect and get through this! Stay healthy as well my friend!
