Candle Flame


#DoodlewashOctober2022 prompt: Candle.

#Inktober prompt: Flame.

Did you know that candles were invented independently in several places around the world? The Egyptians used reeds in animal fat, the Chinese used whale fat, and the Indians used boiled cinammon tree fruit, just to name a few.

I’m Bat kid!


#DoodlewashOctober2022 prompt: Cricket.

#Inktober prompt: Bat.

Did you know that during the Great Depression in America, Halloween pranks resulted in so many accidental deaths that many places considered banning it altogether?

A little early for Halloween yet, but I didn’t feel like painting either a cricket or a bat or a sports game. So I did this instead. Why would a kid carry a plastic cricket bat on Halloween? Beats me!

Splooting


#DoodlewashOctober2022 prompt: Squirrel.

#Inktober prompt: Scurry

Did you know that besides scurrying around, squirrels sploot (lie flat on their stomach with back legs extended outward)?  Many animals do this in order to cool themselves during hot days.

REVIEW: Nicholson’s Peerless Watercolors


At first look, you might think these are paint chip samples, but Nicholson’s Peerless Transparent Watercolors are “DryColor Sheets”. Invented 135 years ago, they are still made using the same methods. The paints are all-natural and 100% non-toxic. Handy for travel, small spaces, and just fun to use.

Xoloitzcuintli


#DoodlewashSeptember2022 prompt: Historic.

Did you know that Xoloitzcuintli (show-low-eetz-KWEENT-lee), also call the Xolo or Mexican Hairless, is believed to be the oldest dog breed in the Americas? Archaeological findings indicate they’ve been around for about 3,000 years.

Iced Cream


#DoodlewashSeptember2022 prompt: Ice Cream.

Did you know that originally ice cream was called ‘iced cream’, the same way you would say ‘iced tea’.  

I think this ended up looking more like hot chocolate than ice cream. I blame it on the Fall weather!

The Call Box


#DoodlewashSeptember2022 prompt: Phone.

Time was a little tight this week and rather than paint something for the phone prompt, I decided to share a project I did back in 2014.

This was a wooden police call box that I colored with blue ink. Behind it I put pieces of watercolored vellum, that looked like stained glass when the light hit it correctly.
