Scribble Picnic: Hot Chocolate

Every afternoon after school, Charlie would venture off into the woods behind his grandpa's house to play with his new friend, Olaf the bear. They loved playing hide-n-seek with Olaf's woodland friends. Afterwards, they would carry berries to the rabbits across the river, buckets of nuts to the squirrels and then shared delicious cups of hot chocolate at the end of the day. Charlie couldn't imagine his world without Olaf. He was the perfect friend...

With that said, please welcome Charlie and Olaf to the picnic. Olaf has brought his favorite peach cobbler pie while Charlie brought along a jug of his grandma's secret hot chocolate with a splash of peppermint. Mmmm.....divine! Me? Oh yes, I've packed a little basket of multiple goodies to make up for missing the last few picnics. There are mini raisin scones, chocolate croissants, snicker-doodles and my favorite....manchego cheese biscuits!'s getting a little nippy out. Grab your warm coats and cozy scarfs. Let's snuggle up around Olaf's warm fire and toast to a wonderful new year.


  1. Sounds like a tasty little feast. And it's so nice of you, Charlie and Olaf to share. This is adorable and I love the story that goes with it too.

  2. OK, I'm hunting for those scones right now! Yum. I hope that hungry bear doesn't snatch everything up.

    Olaf is adorable and especially so is the boy with his wonderful red curly hair! how fun! I love this whole painting with its sort of 1950's printing pattern feel to it with the bands of shadow and light. Fabulous. Thank you so much for taking all the time to render this so perfectly! Glad you're "back!" :)

  3. I think these new characters are so adorable. Charlie and Olaf. I love the way your mind works and what a joy to have such friends at the picnic. Congratulations on all the goodies coming your deserve everyone of them.

  4. Lovely piece for SP Alexandra!

  5. Looks like you are feeling better dear - so happy about that!
    This is adorable - love the polka dot mugs - and the snacks for the picnic sound right up my alley with Manchego cheese biscuits (my favorite cheese - well they all are actually - I'm a cheese-aholic!) and chocolate croissants!

    Love the curly-haired Charlie and his pom-pom hat, very trendy headwarmer this winter, and Olaf appears to be such a pleasant bear.

    Hugs - Mary

  6. Manchego cheese biscuits!!!OOOOH la la!!! We are BIG fans of Manchego cheese, the older the better! That sounds absolutely delicious! :) Your drawing is so cute Alexandra, I love the look on Olaf's face! Reminds me of one of my dogs! I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better! :)

  7. Are you making this into a book, Alexandra? It would be a charming one.

  8. Olaf and Charlie sound like the start of a new book and your picnic goodies have my imagination swirling and my mouth watering. So glad you are back and feeling your creative juices again.
