Fortunately, since I was posting paintings for the Doodlewash prompt all of last month, I have some Postcards from the Lunch Bag and other paintings left to post this month.

Did you know that the puffer fish (who is kind of a beach ball, right?) is a poor swimmer? Scientists think this is why they developed the ability to ingest huge amounts of water to puff themselves up, and why they are so poisonous.

And today’s doodle…

Doodlewash Prompt: Beachball.

Doodlewash Prompt: Ice Cream & Lotus Flower

My back is getting better, but still slowing me down and backs are notorious for taking their time.

I decided I’d do the doodle thing. A thumbnail drawing each day, no more than 2-5 minutes of drawing. I’m doing all on the same sheet of paper so at the end of the month, I’ll have a fun journal page. This will give me time to work on other projects as well, back permitting.
