Very cute!Have a great day...Cheers!Linda :o)
Thanks Linda. It was a fun one.
Wanda, You could make some really cute cards with your drawings and paintings. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
Susie ~ I have quite a collection of cards, but mostly use them and gift them. Should probably get some more of mine printed. Other things seem to get in the way...
I like that his ship is pink - not quite what sailors like, but so very sweet. wonderful take on the theme. & it's great to see your participation again.have a lovely day.
Hi Lissa ~ A gal at the last port gave it to him....haha..a gal in every port.
I bet you had mixed feelings about coming home after a month away. Nice to read your posts again.
I would have stayed longer, but was missing my dearest.
I wonder what grand adventure he's headed off on? Nicely done!
It seems to cry for a story, doesn't it?
Fun. Reminds me of Winnie-the-Pooh (who also sailed in an umbrella once)
Yes, you are right. Also reminded me of his Blustery Day.
Wanda,So great to see you again. I'm back too. I love the action in this piece. I feel like I'm rocking in that boat. The wind and the waves - BlessingsJanis
Thanks Janis...glad we are both back in the swing. I tried to leave a comment on your blog, but couldn't find where.
Love your little man sailing along in his umbrella boat. That's quite a storm, so I hope he has spied some land.
I was pleased with my little Sailor. He just jumped in the umbrella.
This is so cute Wanda, glad to see you back!
Glad to be back. Wasn't sure I could get my idea down on paper, but was please when I finished it. Kinda fell for my Sailor. HaHa
I love your take on the challenge, Wanda! How cool that we had similar ideas. Red umbrellas seem pretty popular. :)
What do they say about "great minds" HaHa. This was a fun theme.
You are VERY talented. That is just darling!!!! You should be selling these on Etsy! xo Diana
Thanks so much. I do have quite a collection of cards, but not a salesman. Usually use them myself, or gift them as a little packet.
Ahoy, Matey! Thar's a sight fer sore eyes. Well... one sore eye!I see landlubbers galore just ripe for plunderin'. This swashbuckler will down some grog and set to pillagin' and hornswagglin'.Show yer colours, Lass, or prepare to be boarded!
Oh Suzanne....LOVE your story. I'll paint the pictures, you fill in the yarn......You are just too cute and this story had me laughing out loud.
Quite a creative use of the umbrella, nice work.
Thanks Janet. It was a fun challenge.
Wanda, I recall one of my recent cruises having captain who looked so like this! Fortunately we didn't have to resort to sailing umbrellas - the boat stayed afloat!Really cute!Mary -
I like your story....give my little sketch some life.
How cute!So is Creative Tuesday is now Scribble? Is it just a name change or are there new rules?
It new. It's weekly, and you know the words for each week for a month. Due on Wednesdays. I can't seem to get the link, but if you go to my side bar to Michael a lil' blog on a dotty hill somewhere it will give you the rules. Wish you would join...love your little sketches.
That is cute! Is the Captain of the boat your husband? Quite a resemblance. 🙂
Wanda! Welcome back and to this picnic illustration land! It's so fun to see you here, let alone bringing your classic wit to this piece. Great job. Is he the baker then? Probably not but I think of the butcher, baker and candlestick maker when I see this. So fun! Thank you so so much for playing along. I hope you enjoyed it and maybe we can be lucky enough to have you again next week for "Lantern?"
Thanks Michael. I did have a delightful time with this. I immediately had the idea, but wasn't sure I could capture it on paper. I like my little Baker Sailor. BTW having trouble putting the icon on my sidebar. Help!!
Betsy, you can learn more here, if you would like to join us! http://dottyhill.blogspot.com/p/join-scribble-picnic.html
So, is your sailor looking for Serena's rat maybe? Wouldn't if be funny if they bumped into one another. What a fun piece. I hope the rain doesn't swamp the boat, er, umbrella!
You never know what can happen on the high seas. I think he has a bucket just in case. HaHa.
Wanda, this is so cute!!Love
Thanks...it was a fun sketch to do.
Ahoy, Wanda! Awww so cute! LOVE his red scarf and fluffy white sailor shirt. :) I'm so happy to see you doing art again. Yay!
So good to get back in to the mix!! I really had fun with this one! Thanks for your encouragement. It means a lot.
Fun, I like how far he is leaning over. Makes me feel like he might tip, but he looks just fine on his adventure.
I was hoping to get some "action" or "movement". Thanks for seeing that.

I see that you and Serena did have similar ideas for the theme. :) Have a good weekend.
I love this, Wanda! So fun!! Always love when you share your art. :)
It is amazing to me that you have time to paint. I guess when it is a gift, it is no chore at all. You are the best, dear Wanda.
