the owl and the pussycat

Went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat
For some reason that poem must have been in my head when I decided to have a bit more of a play with painting 3 dimensional ornaments.

I started with a purple cat (why not?  I can always give anything cat themed to Ella).  I like the detail in the face, but I'm not convinced about the rest of it....

 And then decided that I really wanted to do an owl.  I love the faces of owls, particularly barn owls.

 These two seem very happy together.  
I am really having fun with these- I love how firm they are- really like a 3 dimensional canvas, and I love the way they look hooked around a door handle, or hanging from a hook.  Will definitely be doing more of these.

My mum arrived last night and fortunately I'm feeling a lot better today.  I'm really looking forward to taking her up to VT this weekend to show her our house.


  1. addictive hey! I have made 4 big ones. These look great! Have fun with your Mum x

  2. ooh I do like them. I have lavender bags on the linen cupboard doors for summer, acorns for autumn, perhaps something for spring or winter...
    Happy Holiday, Oki.
