SCRIBBLE PICNIC ~ BOAT

Click to enlarge

The theme word this week is "BOAT"!  The first thought that went through my mind was a "Banana Boat" from a picture I had seen.  Since I do love banana's I think I could work on a Banana Boat in Peru. (Just kidding)  I like the next boat better.  HaHa
 
Now a Banana Boat in Peru is one thing, but a Banana Split Boat in California is my favorite!

I'm really glad this new art co-op is "scribble picnic" and not "masterpiece picnic"...having so much much scribbling in my art journal.

What kind of a boat comes to your mind?  Be sure and click on the Scribble Picnic on the side bar to see all the other "boats".

  1. Ha-ha! Both are great but I'd much rather experience the banana boat in Peru. :)

    1. Since you gave up the jelly donut, I think you can have the banana split. HaHa

  3. Love how you have come up with your boats as I would not even have thought of the first one let alone the second. Want to jump right into that Banana Split Boat. Wonderful interpretation Wanda.

    1. Linda I have many Missionary Calendars from past years, and this reminded me of one of those.
      Yes, several of us could work on that Banana Split Boat. Gotta spoon?

  4. Wanda,
    I find it interesting how many varieties of pictures we get from one prompt. And I too like that we just "scribble" - getting ideas, and going forth. Love both your boats but the banana boats are lovely.
    Blessings,
    Janis

    1. Amazing what a "word" can bring to mind, isn't it. Each from our life experiences and ideas that just "pop" in. Thanks for your kind words.

    1. Thanks....bring a spoon and I'll add another scoop or two!

  6. Now isn't that interesting! I had never even thought about how bananas might initially be transported. The second one–I will be more than happy to bring a spoon and help you with!
    It's not "masterpiece picnic" LOL
    I must keep that in mind because I do tend to erase and fix and erase and redo and erase and... :-)

    1. Oh I'm glad you felt that way too. I always feel like it has to be perfect, and I'm finally breaking that barrier and going with the first draft. I could certainly have done better on the banana boats....but the idea is there and that was the purpose. The Banana Split was a little easier. Bring a big spoon!! HaHa

  7. I've heard of banana boats before but never remember seeing one. Thanks for showing me something new. I like both your interpretations of this theme. I would love to dig into the second one too.

    1. Being a retired Pastor's wife I've had a lot of contact with Missionaries, and the work in other countries. This and many others are on Missionary calendars. I'm glad this was new to you. I love learning new things. I also thought about "The African Queen"....loved that movie.

  8. I definitely would prefer the california banana boat over the other, I'm sure it's much easier to navigate that one.

    super cute take on the theme & very good idea to include two for the theme.

    have a lovely day.

    1. Well so far we have a lot of takers for the second boat. Grab a spoon and join us...I think I better add a few more scoops of ice cream. Thanks for your kind words.

  9. Wanda, both boats are brilliant takes on the themes and you are so right regarding SCRIBBLE picnic. It really is more about scribbling something out and engaging that right side of the brain and creative spirit than having to perfect anything (although I do tend to overwork mine as I am a perfectionsit to a fault with these sort of things but that is not to say anyone else has to!). Anyway, glad you noted that. Thank you.

    As it is, I would definitely share that Banana Split Boat! :) So clever nad far more to my palette than anywhere with possibly giant mosquitos like PEeru, although I suppose if you went up high in the Andes you would be ok!

    Tehy are both so well drawn and painted, amaking for lovely and clever additions to this week's collective.

    Thank you soo much for finding the time to write this up and add/do these. I love them!

    1. Michael, you are an Artist's Artist....and this is your vocation. Mine is a hobby, and I've never been a perfectionist...I work too fast for that in painting and in life. I long to slow down, but it's not in my DNA.

      I'm sure the banana boats are hard, hot sticky work, but it was a picture in my mind.

      AS far as the Banana Split Boat...Yummy to my tummy and I would share with you.

  10. Yum. Funny thing, though....in the midwest, we don't call them boats...just banana splits! But I'd eat it no matter what it was called. Not sharing with the rest of you...I want my own! haha.

    1. OK, you get your own, but lets home the rest don't sneak a bite when you're not looking. HaHa.

  11. Sweet scribbles of barges
    Transporting the fruit
    If monkeys are aboard
    They'd be given the boot

    Oh my! Banana splits
    A treat and a dream
    I'll take mine please
    With extra whipped cream!

  12. What delightful and delicious depictions you've captured in your two really wonderful illustrations Wanda. Hot work indeed on those boats - a yummy chilled banana split boat with three flavors would certainly be welcomed by those guys.

    Thanks for the fun - Mary

    1. Thank you Mary ~ In this old troubled world that sometimes seems upside down, I think we all need a little fun...so glad I could contribute a little. It was a fun challenge for me too.

  13. Both pieces are wonderful. It is something to consider a boat full of bananas. I remember banana boats in Calif. That is a lot of sweetness ;-)

  15. Haha...I LOVE where you went with the Boat theme, Wanda! Very clever. We grew up calling these Banana Splits. :)
