  2. Really enjoying these shades of brown. Peanuts we grow as a crop here but have never seen a water chestnut. Well in a can or the ones that you eat all crunchie. I saw your little sketch you did with the flowers also really like them also.

  9. Beautiful study of peanut shells and their texture =)
    I really like the colored ones too, and the water chestnuts are awesome(eventhough me and my wife don't like to eat them...at all ^^)

  10. Hey Debra, i love your drawings :).
    We have a very small organic farm here in Lake Atitlán, Guatemala and among a couple of other things, we are making peanut butter. I was wondering if i could use the peanut on the very left side of the black and white sketch to put on our label.

    Let me know :)
    hope this message finds you well,
