June 14 This could actually be another scene from the aft deck of our boat. A pair of tree swallows have built a nest inside a hole in a piling on our dock. We have enjoyed watching them coming and going busily feeding a nest full of young. On occasion the pair appear to be having words over how to raise and feed their young with a great deal of bickering back and forth. But soon they go back to busily coming and going. A cacophony arises from the nest with each trip. The youngsters have all left the nest now. But it would appear the couple are preparing for another batch. The cycle will begin again and we will be entertained some more.
#NatureDoodlewash Once again I have used Neocolor II Caran D’Ache combined with Gallery Mungyo Watercolor Crayons. I really need to get myself a bigger collection of Neos!! Original art by Susan Feniak on Canson Mix Media 7” x 10” paper

June 13 Today I share a memory of a walk along the beach, of sun drenched white sand and palm trees rustling in the warm breeze. Today I bring you a conch shell from that walk. If I hold the shell up to my ear I can still hear the Caribbean. In my world this memory is of the ultimate nature walk.

Thank you to Charlie O’Shields at Doodlewash.wordpress.com for inviting us on a month long nature adventure.
It has been brought to my attention that there is a bit of a problem at our party. A shortage of wine. I have been known to be a problem solver and the shortage may be due mainly because I wouldn’t share my wine last week. I have decided to make up for the shortfall by bringing a box of wine to our #DoodlewashDinner. It is National Wine Day, so why not? Lets celebrate! Problem solved right? Wait a minute, it would seem the red wine drinkers may have a complaint now. Oh dear.
My #DoodlewashDinner today was done as per usual on Opus Essentials Sketchbook with Neocolor II Caran D’Ache by me Susan Feniak I have tried not to infringe on any copyright or trademarks. I must say it is an excellent wine and very much enjoyed at this house. Even out of a box.
Thank you once again to Charlie O’Shields at doodlewash.wordpress.com for making this another fun month of doodlewashing.
Escargot! May 24th is set aside for snails. Of the eatable variety. Since I can not make myself eat them I have decided to bring to the table a rather idealistic version. If they smile at you can you eat them? Being a gardener you would think I would despise these guys. I have been known to toss them over the fence to be rid of them but eat them? Not.
I have been absent of late. Work has called me away from the table. This #DoodlewashDinner is done on Opus Essentials Sketchbook with Neocolor II Caran D’Ache and Gallery Mungyo Watercolor Crayons by Susan Feniak
Today I am bringing to the table my favourite bottle of wine. And my biggest glass. So be careful there may not be enough to go around! I do share but within reason!! Because I am not sure if I should post name brands I will keep myself out of trouble by hinting at its name with the design of the label. That being said I am sure they wouldn’t mind a little free advertising. It is a delicious wine with a citrus flavour that only New Zealand can provide. Cheers! Susan

A wee painting to share today. I am inspired by all the flowers and blossoms of the moment. Our hotter then normal spring has everything out in bloom. Its going to be done and over with before it is supposed to even start!
Today is supposed to be Liver and Onions Day. But because we have been so well behaved around here lately we have opted for pizza. Long live pizza and beer night! My home made pizza is almost as infamous as my chocolate chip cookies. Truly as evil and jumps right off the plate and into your mouth just as easily!!

Happy Mothers Day to all! As it so happens it is the 8th day of the month which means Draw A Bird Day as well. My present to you on Mothers Day and Draw A Bird Day is my new painting, “Coming In For A Landing”. The chickadees are at the feeder enjoying their seed or trying to. Flowers, blossoms and spring greenery abound. My hope is you all enjoy this special day. Hugs, Susan

Today I give you my infamous homemade chocolate chip cookies! Infamous because they are notoriously good. They jump right off the plate and get into your mouth. Truly evil. Over the years I have made thousands of these beauties. A true family favourite. Well look at that, there I go eating my props, again!! Told you they were good.

Here we are again, sitting down to dinner at our house. In my quest to introduce more fish into our diet let me introduce you to ground salmon wrapped with a fillet of sole. Garnished with fresh dill and parsley from our herb pot. I have also made you some rice pilaf and broccoli. Please help yourself to the salad. Cheers! Oh darn I have forgotten the fresh lemon wedges. Pardon me while I go get them!
