Pink Vulture – Postcards for the Lunch Bag

I realized that I had never posted this one, so here ’tis!

Did you know that the Bearded vulture, like the flamingo, turns pink because of its diet? In this case though, it is bones rather than brine shrimp that cause the color.

PassionforArt19’s Elephant – Postcards for the Lunch Bag

You may have noticed that I’m not posting very often. I’ve been trying to write a third Diggory Wombat novel, with an eye to publishing it in time for Christmas shopping. It will be longer than the first two.

In order to concentrate on the book, I’m reducing my time on the internet and the amount of time working on other art projects – even my Postcards for the Lunch Bag!

I’ll still post once or twice a week and do some commenting on my social media sites. I apologize if I don’t comment on yours – it’s going to be luck of the draw! Hopefully, I’ll be back to my usual habits in a month or so.

Doodlewash Doodles – July, Week 4


Artwork-Faber-Castell Watercolor in a Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook

I decided to do all the remaining prompts for the month on this page – 10 of them! To be truthful, the prompts just weren’t bringing any images to mind, but I could see a story, so I just painted a couple of images and let the words do the rest.

The Rhino’s Tear – I butchered the words to a favorite song. It will never go down as one of history’s greatest, but hey! I got in all the words and they almost work to the music.

Yesterday … an abundance of rhinos were around to play,

now most of them have gone away

a few alone are left today

if only we could d0-over yesterday.

Why they had to go, I hate to say

their horns so sharp were torn away

so valuable but gone away.

I sup-pose the shine of tears is complementary.

Doodlewash Prompts:

  • 22 valuable
    23 alone
    24 abundance
    25 sharp
    26 favorite song
    27 shine
    28 rganic
  • 29 complementary
  • 30 pose
  • 31 do-over

Doodlewash Doodles – July, Week 3


Artwork-Faber-Castell Watercolor in a Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook

I intended to do these one day at a time, but when I read the prompts, they sort of went together in my head. I was also testing the markers on the paper, so I ended up doing the whole page at once.

RELEASE THE SPRAYKAN – The forgotten titans of Atlantis made the spontaneous decision to release their Spraykan machine to wiggle its mechanical tentacles thru the organic soil, & spray a mist of their favorite scen – sea salt & spray graffiti messages everywhere … Save The Oceans!

Well, I had a grand idea, but not much time and a rather muddy vision of how to flesh out the idea. I’m not sure it’s clear what’s going here, but I had fun with it anyway.

I’ve got lots happening this week, so I’m not sure how much I’ll post, but be sure to check out my review of Albrecht Dürer® Faber-Castell Artists’ Watercolor Markers this Friday, July 24!
