F is for Froot Loops, HAZZAAA!!
watercolor on Ampersand Aquabord, 5 x 7″

I realize posing Playmobile characters with cereal is a bit out there but I was desperate for an F, people.

Plus, getting that damn hot pink Froot Loop in his little hand was quite the challenge, going through enough of them to fill MY belly as I had to chew one side and then the other to make it thin enough to fit in his tiny grasp. *EYE GOUGE*. What we do for ART! I love all the colors and the composition of the piece, though!

Until…

Freddie got home and saw what I was working on….

He says, “That’s COOL mom, but you know what would have been COOLER?? If you put the Froot Loops on his sword! That would have been awesome. Skewered cereal. Hazzzaaa!!” And he walks away from me. Where were YOU when I was planning this in the first place, kid?? Oh yeah, outside, playing with your FRIENDS! Dang it.

Skewered on the sword. Now that would have been much easier. Why didn’t I think of that!!??

I blame early onset senility…..

  3. I love the Froot Loops idea for F. Although they are primarily a children’s cereal I went through a habit of eating them dry out of the box during my partying years and now can’t eat them without thinking of all the ridiculous things I did when inebriated. Not always something I want to re-live. Great post!

    1. omg, that is hilarious, Calli!! haha! I have good stories, too…. those were the days… waking up with crap stuck to you and you don’t know how or where it came from. Including dried cereal… on your face. Hung over. Ah, memories. *sigh*

  4. I like the ‘F’ picture. Love the skewered fruit loops idea. Save it for ‘S’ and use it then!

    1. An Artist, I found an Artist! Yea! I am not a real artist since I don’t draw or paint everyday, but I do love art (art and books). Artists can find inspiration in everything, like you.

    1. Thanks Madeline! Doing these paintings is definitely bringing back memories for me and it also involves my kids in my work, which is great for me :-). I showed them your tortoise pics and they said you are lucky to have them! (they just have fish :-|).
