SCRIBBLE PICNIC ~ LANTERN

The word this week for Scribble Picnic is "LANTERN".

My illustration is a lantern that sits on my coffee table with a battery candle.  A sketch in pen and color pencils.

    1. Thanks. Yes some of them are very pretty and popular. This one the battery has lasted a really long time. I also love "real" candles.

    1. Thanks Michael. I do not have a TV in the living room, so that's where I sit in the evenings or mornings and drink a cup of tea or coffee and reflect on the day. It's a sweet time and the lantern is a gift from one of my daughters. Very special indeed.

  5. That's a very pretty lantern. You've captured it quite nicely. I love those battery operated candles - so much safer these days.

    1. Thank you Lorraine ~ It is safer, and the batteries last a really long time. I don't have it on all the time but early in the morning or in the evenings it's a nice glow!

  6. Like you, my lantern is on my coffee table - sometimes I just flick the switch on a battery candle, other times light the real thing if I'm going to be staying close by.

    Love your grey shades Wanda.

    1. Thanks Tammie Lee ~ You can picture me in the evening with a cup of coffee and sitting on the couch enjoying the simple glow of the candle as I reflect on the day. My quiet time.

    1. Hey Bob ~ nice to see you. My month in Oregon with our youngest daughter and little grandson was delightful. Nice to be home and back in my routine. Thanks for your kind words. I love watercolors, but this Scribble Picnic is stretching me...but I need that. HaHa

    1. Thanks dear friend. Some scribbles are easier than others. I think my lamp is rather lop sided...oh well. It's the thought that counts..HaHa.

  10. Ha! Too funny Wanda, as when I looked at your art before reading, I said to myself, "That looks like an LED candle." haha :) Anyway, lovely lantern with a beautiful pattern on it.

    PS LOVE your blogger background. :)

    1. I've been a scribbler since a little girl. When others were riding their bikes or skating.. I was happy with a tablet and pencil. Watercolor came along soon after.

  12. Lovely lantern, especially the design work on it! It was my turn to miss the "picnic" this week, as we were visiting grandchildren and taking a short trip. I know you understand!

  13. This looks so much like a lantern I gifted to a friend of mine. I always loved it.
    True confessions... I wish I had kept it! Her aunt borrowed it as a prop for an opera and it broke. :-(
