  4. Reminds me of a country song by Merle Haggard:

    “Eatin’ rainbow stew in a silver spoon
    underneath that sky of blue
    We’ll all be drinkin’ free bubble-ubb
    and eatin’ that rainbow stew.”

    Rachel, Just so you know, I am taking all of your beautiful images in, I just don’t always comment.

    Something I was hoping you could share with me, and everyone else, if you don’t mind…

    You’re inspiring me to create my own doughnut images, but I’m having difficulty with the supplies I have. Can you tell me what
    a.paper b.paints c.brushes you use?

    I love the rich colors you use, they are the tones/shades I love too.

    If you want to e-mail me this information, you can do that, too. My address for my DD Project is

    I would appreciate your help with finding more suitable tools for my art. Thank you for inspiring me to pick up my own brush.

    Lisa : )

    *dear lisa and all* i simply go to a local art store and find pretty markers and paper that works well with markers! there are some exceptions, like i used oil pastels on my jan. 20 every last lock posting and acrylics on my dec. 1 all the lights are on posting. the rest of the best of materials is straight from the heart! hope that helps and happy creating!
