    I drew this while flying home from Florida. I had just flown out of Atlanta and after I started I was reminded of the shuttle train connecting the gates in that airport, so that\'s what I went with. It\'s been a long few weeks and I haven\'t been able to get much art done. It\'s the first time in years that I\'ve gone so long in-between drawing and painting. After doing art daily for so long, it amazes me how hard it is to get started again and how quickly you lose the flow in your work. If you don\'t use it, you DO lose it!

  • Jumping in again for our prompt of “Raincoat” today, with a little doodlewash of a bunny wearing one. I love a rainy day, though sometimes where I live it turns into a nonstop week of rain. So, when the rain

    • HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONTH CHARLIE! We join you in celebrating a bunch of birthdays and anniversaries in April, and especially that book release! Congratulations! How exciting to hear you’re on to the next. The art will be the icing on your cake! The 50’s have been exciting, liberating, (a little vexing), and a lot if joy and gratitude. We’re definitely looking ahead with a bit of hope!🤗 Thanks for this place to enjoy our art and community together!

      • Thanks so much!!! 😃💕 Happy birthday and anniversary to all!! Yeah, I’m looking forward to this next decade. And always looking ahead. I know there’s lots of hope on the horizon!

    • Happy Birthday month Charlie! And, I have fantastic news for you. Your inner child will come out more and more as you get older. I am 68 and I am just about all kid now 😉 I agree, thanks for the gift of this wonderful community. Love, love your bunny in a raincoat 🙂

      • Thanks so much, Zoie! 😃💕 Yay for just getting younger and younger! Yeah, I think it’s just the way we’re meant to grow older properly!

    • Happy Birthday, 50 is a hoot! Enjoy

    • Happy Birthday month! I hope you enjoy everyday to the fullest.

    • Chaaarrlllieee! Great to see you pop up with a bunny looking very snazzy in that sunny yellow raincoat. It has been hailing and indeed snowing here today, so perhaps boots are needed, too…

      Sounds like you’re on a roll juggling any number of things, as per usual. Hope you have a great birthday – not long now! <3

      • Thanks, Jacob! 😃💕 I’ll never forget that time you gave me a zonkey for my birthday! hehe Best day ever! And yeah, hail and snow doesn’t sounds quite as fun. I hope that’s all past here… but each time it warms up, it gets cooler the next day. 😉

        • That was five years ago now, can you believe it!? Maybe Philippe can make a zonkey cake? 😛 That would be so cool!

          • I know!! Time really flies… it seems like yesterday. And now I’m starting a whole new decade! Geesh! But a zonkey cake would be the coolest! I shall request one! 😉 lol

    • Happy birthday month! I’ll have cake in your honor!😂😂😂 Joe and I are waiting for our 2nd shots so looking forward to that. Maybe we can have company!

      • Thanks so much, Lisa! 😃💕 Yay! Let’s all have some cake! Yeah, I get my second shot the day after my birthday, so just before the end of the month, I’ll be totally ready to hug the first other fully vaccinated person I see! hehe I hope I actually know them as it might be awkward. 😉

    • Terrific news, Charlie! Can’t wait to get your new book(s), and I’m sending you the happiest of birthday wishes! 🥰🎂🎁🥂

      • Aww thanks so much, Carol! 😃💕 I hope folks enjoy this new series. I’m loving making them! Here’s to a beautiful and creative April!

    • Charlie if I ever thought of you as having age I would have said 30s. You are ageless somehow. Congrats on the books! YAYYYYYYYYYY!! You are multifacted.

      Yep cake makes us smarter hehehhehe. And happy birthday — now that you finished your birthday cake. Cackle.

      • That’s the sweetest compliment ever! 😃💕 30s?? I’ll take that… tell everyone!! lol And I definitely think cake makes us smarter for sure… well, a story I tell myself at least. Hmmm… you reminded me… I should get another cake for my birthday. This one doesn’t count! lol

    • Congrat’s to you for the progress on your book, and for reaching the half-cenury mark! “Ah yes, I remember it well….” (was it Maurice Chevalier who sang a duet of that song?) As you age, your inner child will continue to come out, and you will not be judged harshly for it! May God grant you many,many years!

      • Thanks so much, Bob! 😃💕 Yeah for a half-century and living the next half with my inner child playing constantly! It’s going to be fun!!

    • Always nice to see you around with your lovely sketches and your awesome talks. I am super excited for you and to see your first illustrated book. I know it will be great. Keep on keeping on and have a wonderfully blessed birthday!!!

      • Thanks so much, Priscilla! 😃💕 I almost wasn’t sure if I would pull it off, but I just kept on DOing it and it worked out! Hope you and yours are doing well!

    • Have a good birthday month, Charlie. Im glad you’re getting on with your second book.

      • Thanks so much, Gary! 😃💕 Yeah, there’s a bit of delay for books to appear online. So I figured I just leap ahead and go for two! hehe

    • Hope you have a wonderful birthday month and celebrate each and every day!!!

    • Congrats on getting your next book started! I hope you had a great Easter weekend! I got to spend mine with family I don’t see too often so it was wonderful indeed!

      • Thanks so much, Sandra! 😃💕 Aww that’s wonderful! Getting to spend time with family is the best ever. My mom and sister are supposed to pop by next month. We’ll all be vaccinated by then, so there WILL be hugs!! Yay!

    • Great to hear you have a picture book coming out soon and all the future projects ,wish you a great birthday month maybe you gonna held a big party btw a sweet colorful bunny in a raincoat you painted!!

      • Thanks so much, Fatima! 😃💕 Yeah, I think every spring I get extra motivated. I hope you’re enjoying the month and having a lot of fun!

    • Thanks so much, Linda! 😃💕 Yeah, I think treats are always a good booster for creativity! hehe

    • Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Yeah, it’s been a great month so far. It always takes time for a new book to actually show up fully online, but hopefully in the next couple weeks the first one will appear! I’m excited to get going on the next one even though I think a sane person would take a little break in between! lol Thankfully, that’s not me at all! Hope you are doing well!

    • Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 Aww… you know what I do on my stories? I really don’t know exactly what’s going to happen when I start, but I start writing the first bit and then after I get a handle on that part and what needs to happen for my character, I jump to the end and write how I’d like to see it finish for them. Then it’s just sort of fun and surprising journey to find out how the heck to get there! My posts work pretty much the same way, actually! lol I don’t know if it’s a proper method at all, but it seems to work for me, at least! 😉 I hope you have a fabulous and creative month my friend!

  • Happy Easter To All Who Celebrate. May this be a day of peace and happiness for everyone whatever their faith or beliefs.

  • Jumping back in for our prompt of “Bulbs” today with a little doodlewash of a mouse admiring a lightbulb. I’ve been on an extended break while working on my next book, but I’m thrilled to say that it’s finally

    • Just yesterday I was thinking how nice it would be to see a post from you and VOILA! How exciting that your book is complete and I am certain it will be wonderful even if it isn’t edible. ( Sorry Phineas) Can’t wait to see it in print! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Charlie!!

      • Aww thanks, Mary! 😃💕 Yeah, I meant to show up more, but the final bits of finishing my book took me offline quite a lot more than I expected! Hope you’re having a fabulous weekend!

    • Congratulations on finishing the book! I’m eager to add it to my collection of Charlie O’Shields books. Will it be available in both Ebook and Print versions?

      • Thanks so much, Sandra! 😃💕 At this point, it will start as Print versions only, since it’s interactive and people can add their own drawings. But I’ll probably make it an ebook as well soon after! 😉

    • Wonderful news! Good on you!

    • Gotta love that little mouse – does the light bulb mean he has a huge idea?? We are all anticipating the new book with our grandchildren in mind, I know my granddaughter’s twins will love it! And Happy Upcoming Birthday! Is that 13th in April or May?

      • Thanks so much, Bob! 😃💕 Well… I always think I have a big idea in mind, but I’ll leave that up to all of you to decide. Hehe… I always make books with a bit of a concept, so I hope people will enjoy this next one! And it’s definitely designed to be enjoyed with grandparents and grandchildren together! I’m very excited about it!

    • Fantastic, Charlie! Looking forward to reading your new creation! Congratulations and thanks for being a great inspiration!

      • Thanks so much, Kathy! 😃💕 I really appreciate the support! I’m definitely spreading my wings and trying something new so I hope you’ll enjoy it when it arrives!

    • Woo-hoo on your new book, Charlie 💃! Good to hear all that you guys have been up to!

      • Thanks so much, Zertab! 😃💕 It’s been quite a challenge over these last few weeks, but I finally figured it all out I think. hehe… just excited to share what I’ve come up with next!

    • Oh Charlie, congrats you deserve this!(x) a zillion! 😁😄🤗🤩🎉🥇 I can hardly wait! You will tell us, your adoring public, how to get first edition, signed! Hug your loved ones, do the happy dance, and pat yourself on the back!

      • Aww thanks so much!! 😃💕 Oh my… I’ve not even figured out signed versions… hehe… it’s always a lot to just get these books in print! lol I truly hope everyone will enjoy what I’ve come up with next!

    • Can’t image anyone doesn’t like your illustrations. They always bring a smile to my face. What a great way to celebrate your birthday. Just waiting for the release date. thanks as always for sharing.

      • Thanks so much, Theresa! 😃💕 That made my heart smile. It’s always exciting and also a bit scary to unveil something new. I’m proud of what I came up with, and really hope that everyone enjoys it!!

    • Congratulations Charlie! What an amazing accomplishment. You should be proud of yourself!

      • Thanks so much, Lori! 😃💕 Yeah, I really wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to pull this one off! hehe But, it looks like I’m going make it before my deadline… just under the wire! lol

    • Congratulations on getting this far with your book. I love this doodle.

      • Thanks so much, Gary! 😃💕 Yeah, this book is extra special as it’s all from scratch! Hope folks enjoy it as much as I did making it!

    • Awww I’m so thrilled to hear you’re enjoying Doodlewash, Donna! And yay! I hope you enjoy the new book along with your grandchildren… that’s my hope for this one…I hope it’s really something fun that you can DO together! 😃💕

    • Thanks so much, Linda! 😃💕 Yeah… I wasn’t sure if I could DO it! hehe… but then it happened as these things often do. I hope folks enjoy it!

    • Thanks so much, Mari! 😃💕 I’m so happy you enjoy seeing my posts… they’ve been far and few between lately as I finished up this book. And Phineas would totally approve of your puppy’s approach to life! lol And I think I have to agree as well! 😉

    • hehe! Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Welcome to the 50’s makes it seem like I’m going back in time, which I appreciate! lol Thanks for cheering me on! It’s always tough to put myself out there, and my ideas are never a perfect replica of what’s already happened. So I’ve no idea if this one will be considered a good one, but I’m rather excited to share it anyway! 😉

    • Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 Trust me… your path is either right around the corner or right in front of you, just waiting for you to embrace it! That’s something I’ve definitely learned along the way. I’m thrilled that I completed my book and while I hope people enjoy it as much as I did making it… I feel great just DOing it! I think when we make our own dreams come true, we add a little spark of hope into the universe that makes other people’s dreams more possible. So we should always chase and fulfill those dreams no matter what. It makes the world a more beautiful and magical place!
