Today, my hubby took a purple cow in his lunchbag.

The Doodlewash prompt for today is ‘Simple Pleasures’. I’ve always enjoyed silly little poems like ‘Purple Cow’, and that is about as simple a pleasure as you’ll ever find, lol.

(Reflections on a Mythic Beast Who’s Quite Remarkable, at Least.)

I never saw a purple cow
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I’d rather see than be one!

Today, my hubby took a Silky Chicken in his lunchbag.

The Doodlewash prompt for today is Snow White. The silky chicken is definitely snow white. They don’t just look unusual – they are. Besides the fine fluffy feathers they have black skin, black bones and blue earlobes. I truly have to wonder if they aren’t space aliens in disguise!

That Horse – Gray or White?


If you are looking for the Life Imitates Doodles Weekly Wednesday Giveaway #15 , you can find it here.

Today, my hubby took a grey horse in his lunchbag.

The Doodlewash prompt for today is ‘Battleship Gray’. I chose to do a gray horse because I find the subject of gray vs white in horses to be an interesting one.

That horse – gray or white? The answer isn’t as easy to figure out as you might think.

White horses are born white and have pink skin. There are no albinos – the genetics that cause albinism don’t exist in horses. However, lethal white syndrome is a genetic order that occurs in many white horses, and they die as foals, making true white horses uncommon.

Gray horses are born dark – even black sometimes. They have black skin, which stays black. Their coats lighten as they grow older becoming steel, dappled or … white! Most ‘white’ horses are actually mature grays.

You can’t make up stuff like this!

Hot Summer Night with Giraffe

I’ve been trying to keep up with the February Doodlewash prompts and managed to do most of them. The prompt Giraffe came up though, and time was short. I grabbed my Ecoline Watercolor Brush Pens and just started drawing with nothing much in mind except Giraffe. I added a few doodles with a fluorescent yellow Gelly Roll pen, afterward.

The result is a bit odd, but I like it.
