This week's Scribble Picnic is cookie. I finished an old piece that happens to have cookies in it.  For more Scribble Picnic, go here.

    1. I would definitely add more frames if it had made sense.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  3. I'm so glad, Lissa, you showed us close ups as I was trying to make out some of the pictures behind these three girls even when enlarged, particularly the one with the Asian/black hair pulled up in a braid with a bone through it. So compelling, as is the whole image. Is this continued from the sketch you did of three women like this with the wall of pictures behind them? Great job. I love it. Cookie wonder indeed.

    1. I keep adding 'click on the image for a larger view' but I don't think people do that so adding the closeups is another way to see the piece more closely, I guess.

      if you look closely, the images in the frames have some similar things - like the hairpin which I didn't think of it as a bone, I think of it as one of those jade/stone hairpins. the blue bunny is in one of the frame as a sepia-tone image. the hairstyle of the girl on the left is similiar to one of the framed things.

      I've posted this piece as unfinished previously so it's not a continued piece but the same piece, which I don't expect anyone to remember.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

    1. previously I have named this piece 'the spring sisters' or something similar but I guess you can interpret them as friends also.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  6. Wow, so much interesting detail and I am sure there is a tale to be told about all of these wonderfully unique portraits ... and an Asian sitting at the end of the table is very significant. I assume only you could know, but I will weave my own little story from it all. Lovely, Lissa ...

    1. make up any story you want, you're the viewer so you can interpret as you like.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  7. My goodness, every picture on the wall is an entire piece of art! Seems like a big project which is so interesting. I clicked on each to see it larger, so enjoyed that. I really like all the characters that you highlighted in the last photo. Fun to see you do a man as well.
    Lovely day to you Lissa.

    1. I guess it's a big project because it take a long while to finish, & in fact, I redraw a lot of the parts.

      in the beginning, I imagined the framed images as stories/fairyales in itself but then I added some things to connect to the ladies, but you can think of them as having their own stories as well.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  8. Lissa...first off, it's SO wonderful to have you back. You've been missed and you've been on my mind and heart a lot. I do hope you're OK. Secondly, what another smashing piece! So many wonderful things...I think my favorite are the picture frames. Whoa! SO cool! :)

    1. my favorite are the framed images, I honestly could have removed the ladies from the image but I like it with them.

      like I previously reply in the earlier comments, I'm thinking it's more of a continuation rather a come back but thank you for your kind thoughts.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  9. I recognized this from when you started it earlier. It looks great! I would be the one actually eating a cookie. Love that she's looking at a photo of a cookie while she's at it!
