What’s in a Dot? An Art Prompt

Scribble Picnic: Fill in the Blank Mr Michael at #ScribblePicnic gave a very usual prompt this time. It was called “Fill in the Blank”. Take a look below. We were to take this exact shape and size (we could turn it around and change the colour) and incorporate it into a picture. Since Canada 150 […]

Tadeo Turtle enjoys a delicious piece of watermelon

Scribble Picnic: Watermelon This week for #ScribblePicnic the prompt is watermelon. That is a savoury treat for this time of year. Since I have seen so many pictures of turtles snacking on watermelons I couldn’t resist putting my little Tadeo in this week’s picture. Here he is enjoying his juicy watermelon treat. Tadeo Turtle was […]

Memories from Jars

Jars – Scribble Picnic Today the prompt for #Scribblepicnic is JARS. I checked the definition of jar, as most people would probably think of a glass jar. Jar: a wide-mouthed, cylindrical container made of glass or pottery, especially one used for storing food. Synonyms: container, pot, crock, receptacle, cookie jar, mason jar, ginger jar   […]

Potted Plant – Scribble Picnic

Our prompt from #ScribblePicnic this week is Potted Plant. I had been given a lovely lily plant by the people who stayed in our home over the winter. I had taken its picture. Alas, the lily is no longer with us. It bloomed beautifully – then nothing. So into the garbage it went. So sad. […]

Door – Scribble Picnic

The prompt this week is door for #ScribblePicnic. I hadn’t picked up a paint brush and my watercolour for a long time. Not since I finished the last picture for I Remember – The Seasons. It was good to get back into it. I enjoyed the process again. Now I should be ready to start […]

Trees – Scribble Picnic

We live about 3 hours north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Snow still lay in the bush for the first few days after our arrival and in  piles […]

Ladder – Scribble Picnic

A little sleepy we were. After a ride from airport to north of Barrie, we had a little nap at our […]

We head home on Tuesday and when this post goes live I will have landed in Toronto, ready to head back home to Haliburton. We […]

Boats: Scribble Picnic

Today is #Scribblepicnic day. The prompt is boats. My picture is painted with watercolour pencils. No micron pens today. I don’t come from a boating family. I remember the one and only time being in a boat before I turned 16. We had rented a cottage on an island and with it came a boat. […]

Embrace: Five Minute Friday

The word for Friday at 5 Minute Fridays was embrace. I couldn’t put together 5 minutes to write since Friday. Now I have those 5 minutes and I will try. Here goes: When I saw the word embrace my first thought was a hug. I love hugging – my family and close friends. I’m not […]
