“Sleep With One Eye Open” #WorldWatercolorGroup 

The June 27th prompt was Cucumbers.  I felt like painting Dandy the lion keeping one eye on his youngster instead. Keeping one eye on such a cutie is essential. Especially when ones youngster appears to be as inquisitive as this one does. Not to mention the dangers lurking where these two live.

 I used to tell our kids that I had eyes in the back of my head too. How about you?

I need to name Dandy’s little one. Any ideas?

“Dragonfly” #WorldWatercolorGroup 

June 26th and the prompt Dragonfly was fun. Here I give you two. One very stylish the other perhaps a little hungry.  Dragonflies kept my pond clear of unwanted insects so I  doubt they would resort to leaf eating. I bet it’s resting instead. Original art by Susan Feniak. QOR water color on Strathmore Paper.  Both are 6″×6″

“Ice Cubes” #WorldWatercolorGroup 

June 25th Another quick sketch for you.  And of course the glass holding the ice cubes had to be blue. This is me 😆. Original sketch by Susan Feniak.  Watercolors on Strathmore Paper.  4″×6″

“Squirt Gun” #WorldWatercolorGroup


June 24th “Squirt Gun”  This is another quick sketch but sometimes that is all a girl has time for.  When it came to water fights my weapon of choice was always Grandma’s discarded liquid dish soap container.  You see winning a water fight is more important then how the weapon looks.  That dish soap container out lasted and out squirted any other dime store version I ever bought or owned.   Of course it helped that I knew just how to maneuver that bottle to get just the right projection.  I also learned to save my skinny dime allowance to spend on candy or freezies instead.   If it was a serious water fight than nothing out did the hose and nozzle which there was always a mad race to reach before anyone else.  The prompts this month have me traveling down memory lane more often then not.  I have missed some but am trying to catch up.  Hope you are enjoying a super weekend.
