Picture Details for "Fill in the Blank" - due Feb 16th

You Picnic Mission, should you choose to accept it, is to fill in the rest of the picture, using a rectangle like this. Notice, it's not square but not a long rectangle either. It doesn't have to have a black line and could be filled in but the shape should be close to something like this.

It could be a place mat, TV tray, laptop or such but what do you see? Let's find out on the 16th. See you then! Thanks for playing along.

Hope everyone had a good Valentine's. We went and enjoyed hot fudge sundaes from McD's which actually was a such a treat. No Braveheart watched but of those on the ice at the Winter Olympics! :)

Mushy Valentine's Day Scribble Picnics!

"Mushy Peas" — Oh Peas, just kiss me!

Happy Valentine's Day! I know, I know, some note how it's a horribly commercial holiday and all that, but as it is, aren't all the holidays these days, especially Christmas and Halloween? Well, be that as it may, I'm choosing to focus on romance, love and kindheartedness this day (and every day)! How can you go wrong with that? :) Speaking of which, hmm, it might be time to watch again my favourite romantic movie... "Braveheart!" Oh yes, it IS incredibly so! I mean, for one, the protagonist is a brave man fighting for his wife's honour and even Sophie Marceau comes in later as the beautiful lovelorn princess. Oh, and it quite possibly has the most stirring musical score ever. Sigh. OK, time to snap out of it and pull myself back together!

As most of you probably already know, I'm not terribly into doing representational art — it rather leaves my imagination disengaged. This lil' peas of art is rare indeed then! Trouble is, I didn't have any actual peas to look at, so in the end did get to imagine something after all. Aren't they just too sweet? Kind of like my parents' mantra: sometimes in life, you've just got to go for it — you never know how much longer you've got!

Right, now it's your turn to bring something maybe not so mushy, per se, but certainly depicting such. Can't wait to see what everyone's brought. Split pea soup anyone? :)
