The Owl and The Pussy Cat

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea In a beautiful 'red and white'(!) boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five pound note. The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang to a small guitar, 'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are, You are, You are!What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

a sketch a day

This is a new 'improved photos' version of this post!
This year I decided to do make creative things really important in my life. This blog is one element, and another is that I've been attempting to do a sketch a day. I don't think I've managed seven in any one week, and some weeks I've done as few as two, tho two is my minimum so far. I'm very easy on myself and cheating is allowed. Sometimes a sketch fills more than one day, and at the end of each week I just fill any empty spaces with pattern or collage when I feel like it. Here are some images from some of the weeks. One of them was a 'collage' week.

Things to spot...General greenery/flowers/gardening boots. Strawberries from the allotment, vince asleep, a guitar and elderflower champagne bottles!

I'm sure my drawing skills are getting better. I 'spose they're bound to really.
Hopefully I've covered over most of the writing for the privacy of others .


  1. The pictures look lovely - what I can see of them . . .
    And I love the idea of trying to do something creative every day but being allowed to cheat. I shall borrow that for my writing.

  2. Thank you for your comments Belinda, you've inspired me to re-do the photos. And I like the idea of a bit of creative writing each day, I might borrow that back for one of my weeks.
