The Owl and the Pussycat

November 1st, 2010

Day One of Art Every Day Month has begun and it's been so fun to see people checking in! My first creation for AEDM is a 6"x6" painting of "The Owl and the Pussycat." I remember reading this story as a child, but I didn't read it again before painting this, I just went for a simple image of my memory of it.

Happy creating, everyone!

love it!! Chloe has a beautifully illustrated Jan Brett version that we all adore–and know by heart, we’ve read it so many times. I like the little waves…reminds me of something ;)

So adorable! I love the upside-down waves.

Happy AEDM! I didn’t get a post up today, but I painted!

Lovely painting.

Love the Owl and the Pussycat! I got my first day’s art done as well…THe Eye of Intuition.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Big time LOVE it!!

Owl and kitty are cute, I want to go sailing with them!

Pussycat looks a bit worried. I think owl needs to tuck her under his wing! Great start to the month Leah. I love the poem. I read it at my friends’ wedding.

ohhhh i love the looks on their faces! they don’t seem quite frightened, but it is clear that they are on an adventure and are wondering what on earth awaits them! darling painting, leah!

Such a sweet, yet mysterious little painting!

made me smile :)

I’m in the computer artistry planning stage, so nothing to post yet today, but I’m creating :) .

Stay inspired!

Sweet! So pretty!
Thanks for your message. It meant a lot to me that you took the time today. :)

Lovely painting. The animals look so cute!
Thank you for organizing again the AEDM and taking the time to visit my blog!

I love it, so cute. Also, so grateful to you for organizing this and CED, which I also do, this year has been an incredibly fulfilling year creatively, because of you. Thank you.

I really like how you did the waves.

So sweet!

That story was always a favorite of mine as a child. It inspires me to this day. I am so delighted with your painting!

very sweet. I really love the way you use blue in all your paintings and I have a soft spot in my heart for owls..

What a fantastic painting… a great start to the November challenge :)

Thank you for hosting such an inspiring event – it’s helping me get my rear in gear!

I love how the water looks like fish scales. This painting brings back memories of hearing that story when I was little…

I’m thrilled to be a part of your challenge again this year. Thanks for hosting it!

So adorable! I love your whimsical paintings :)

What a cute painting! My first day of the AEDM challenge consisted of sorting through 2 sets of drawers filled to the brim with craft material and supplies and reordering them into just one set of drawers. I had to create order in the chaos before I could start crafting! :)

My father’s favorite poem–he loved to read it to me. I got him a neat poster one time and he put it up by his desk. Your fun painting brought back some good memories.

Your Owl and the Pussycat piece is so sweet. I’m very partial to that story as my now husband gave me that book when he proposed.

Nicely done! I love the expression of both!

They look so incredibly chirpy and curious sitting in the boat!
