Scribble Picnic: Jars

'waiting' (click on the image for a larger view)

This week's Scribble Picnic is jars. As you can see this piece is not finished and I also don't really have a title as 'waiting' is not quite what I like. Visit for more Scribble Picnic over here.

  1. Every time I come to your site, I get a calming feeling with the gentle and soft feeling of your work...rather mesmerizing....sigh......You tiny details are so fun to find. I like the little heart tucked in her dress. Great work as you do each week.

    1. I guess it is calming as I rarely draw anyone doing anything too active. that heart on her back - you can't see it but one of the jars is empty and that's why she has a heart on her back.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  3. This is so sweet with a feeling of longing.
    I enjoyed taking to heart all the details. I like how you also show us details to see them more clearly. A beautiful piece. I don't think that I will be able to join you all this time.

  4. A lovely piece for Scribble Picnic theme, Lissa. I love the heart on her back. Is there a meaning behind the hearts in the hanging jars?

    1. meaing behind the hearts in the jars? not really sure, it was just one of those ideas that just came but it could be that hearts are free and that's why they have wings but since they're in the jars, that means they're been captured somehow & perhaps waiting for someone to come along & set them free again. at least, I think that's what's going on here.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  5. I love your explanation on the comment directly above this, as well as you fascinating piece above. So mesmerizing, Lissa. I love all your details. The thoughts and depictions of the hearts, let alone the mail in the tree make the whole piece that much more intriguing.

    You know, Lisss, I hope you realise that I had your style in mind when first coming up with the idea of jars as I imagined you doing something like this with interesting items in multiple jars and as such, your style with all those details is exactly waht inspired me to do my piece.

    Thank you, as always for your wonderful take! I love it. Can't wait to see it all coloured in one day, I hope! Maybe you can add a fox to the mix for next week to continue working on it? :)

    1. the mail was a last minute idea but I like not only she is waiting for someone, perhaps she is also there to fetch some letters from that someone.

      I'm always glad to inspire people which is very sweet as you to mention it.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  6. At first I thought they were pieces of her heart in the jars then I saw the close up with the wings. This is very thought provoking. And very beautiful.

    1. yes, all the hearts have wings because hearts don't stay put or so I think that's what's happening here.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  7. So beautiful Lissa - some people wear their heart on their sleeve - perhaps this lovely young girl kicked over the traces and decided her back was a sweeter place!
    I love the jars hanging from the awesome tree - garden lighting at night is aways beautiful.

    1. anything in jars fill with candles or some sort of light is quite lovely to see especially in a garden.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  8. Lissa,
    My first thought was "Who's Watching?". She seems to be wondering what will happen next. Beautiful soft colours. Very intriguing.

    1. who is watching her? I guess that would be the person she is waiting for or perhaps just someone who happen to come along by accident.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  10. The entire picture is lovely and colorful, but I love when you separate it out, so we can really look at each piece. Something about that bike really intrigues me! Hugs...

  11. Somehow I missed seeing this a couple of weeks ago–glad I got back to it. It leaves me wondering if she will take the heart and put it in the jar, or if she took the heart from the jar to put on her back?
