Day 16 – Barbeques and Bonfires

toasted marshmallows - cynthia maniglia.jpgToday’s #WorldWatercolorMonth prompt is “Barbaques & Bonfires,” and at our house, that means toasting marshmallows to me! Here’s a triple stack of nicely toasted (not burnt) schmellows. Watercolor and gouache on tan toned paper. #toastedmarshmallows #art #BBQ #watercolor #yummy 😋 And P.S. This was a cool 😎 challenge to try to paint 🎨 for me. If you can tell what it is, I’m happy!

P.P.S. I spell it Barbeque – an acceptable spelling, although you may spell it Barbecue. I also like the abbreviation, BBQ! According to Wikipedia …

While the standard modern English spelling of the word is barbecue, variations including barbeque and truncations such as bar-b-q or BBQ may also be found. The spelling barbeque is given in Merriam-Webster and the Oxford Dictionaries as a variant.
