#DoodlewashDinner May 25th Wine Day

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 for making this another fun month of doodlewashing.


#DoodlewashDinner May 24th 2016

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


#DoodlewashDinner May 17th

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

#DoodlewashDinner Barbecue Day!

May 16 Is barbecue day and as it so happens our house guest has asked for barbecue.  Lucky coincidence I should say!!  We are happy to oblige with a barbecued home made beef patty with lettuce, cheese, tomato and a beauty of a pickle served up on a big gooey bun.  Looks good enough to eat.

#DoodlewashDinner May 12

Lemons!  I finally remembered we needed some lemons for our party!  They will go well with that shrimp and of course the ground salmon wrapped with fillets of sole.  I would like some lemon in my water and the beer that came with pizza night.  Yummy!!  Has anyone brought ice tea yet?  Or lemonade?

#DoodlewashDinner  is a project inspired by Charlie O’Shields over at  A month long party of food, he couldn’t go wrong!  My lemons were done on Opus Essentials Sketchbook paper with Neocolor II Caran D’Ache
