Did you know that baby turtles use the natural light from the horizon to find their way to the sea? Car headlights, porch lights – any other light can cause them to go in the wrong direction.

And today’s Doodlewash Prompt. Texture. I decided this painting would be all about figuring out how to get the texture of sand. I’m not totally satisfied, but overall, I’m happy with it.

Did you know that bee-eaters only go after insects that are flying? They will ignore an insect that has landed.

Did you know that owls don’t have eyeballs? Their eyes are immobile tubes that boost depth perception. Fortunately, they can rotate their necks by 270 degrees in order to see in other directions.

And today’s doodle…

Even though they often act like a goofus, the Siamese cat has the soul of a tiger.

Did you know the farther from the center of the body, the darker the fur on a siamese cat, due to a temperature-sensitive enzyme? If you kept one in the freezer, you’d have a solid-colored cat!

And today’s doodle…

Doodlewash Prompt: Tiger’s Eye.

Photos for a change III


I really am painting up a storm, but it’s all for art supply reviews and birthday presents so I can’t post any of it yet.

So paintings will be few for a while, and then I’ll inundate you.

I’m sharing the photos that I’m using for a Facebook challenge.

The Challenge: Kathy Delumpa Allegri nominated me to show a pic of my life, work, studio, or exhibition for 10 days. 10 photos, 10 days (with no explanation). I don’t like to nominate others, so if you are interested just jump right in.

No explanation! It’s a mystery, lol.

The photo above was Day 8.

And today’s doodle…

Doodlewash Prompt: Yo-yo

Did you know that the Leopard Seal is a predator second only to the Orca? They eat fish, bird, penguins, krill, and even other seals. They’ve killed humans, though that is rare.
