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.

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 Prompt. Fruit.

Did you know that animal species, such as this coati that prefer fruit are called frugivores?

The coati is also called a coatimundi, or Hog-Nosed Raccoon. They are members of the raccoon family.

I was so mad – I was almost done with this painting when I spilled water all over it. I was able to save it, but it isn’t nearly as good as it was before the spill.
