Don’t peel that birch bark!

Don’t peel the birch bark! Scribble Picnic: Curly The prompt this week is curly. When we first think of curly we think of curly locks – Shirley Temple.

Did the Fox Make a Wise Decision?

A Fox – Scribble Picnic Another week with not much time to paint. But I did do a sketch of this week’s prompt – a fox. We have seen a red fox a number of times in our backyard here in Haliburton, but never in time to snap a picture. In my sketch I thought… Continue reading Did the Fox Make a Wise Decision?

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.

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.

Fairies: Scribble Picnic

Once again I am joining Scribble Picnic with the word – Fairies. I’m thinking imagination – when I think of fairies. I loved Grimm’s Fairy Tales when I was little. I remember sitting close to my Dad while he would read the stories. Yes they were scary but there was always good that came through.… Continue reading Fairies: Scribble Picnic

Scribble Picnic: Lantern

This week’s prompt at #Scribblepicnic is LANTERN. It’s funny that I love lanterns. We have always had a couple of them around. At our cottage we used them quite a bit when the power went out. Learning to trim the wick, add the oil and not touch the glass when it has been lit were… Continue reading Scribble Picnic: Lantern
