I never, ever, ever, EVER paint cats. Big ones or small ones … never. They have such lush fur and they wear it so well, that I find it really difficult to capture – even with just a pencil drawing cannot do them justice. Therefore it’s easier to just not paint or draw them at all.
So what went wrong here then? I don’t know. I have no idea what form of madness came over me which made me think I could paint a leopard.
A pamphlet came courtesy of the postman today (Monday – as I’m typing this). It was a crafting/painting/sewing/you name it, it covered or mentioned it. Inside was a terrific picture of a Leopard and I sat admiring him. Then this little stray thought came wheedling its way into my brain, and . . . the dreadful, dirty, deed was done.
I went to my craft room to paint an ATC for the World Watercolour Month Challenge and I decided I would have a bash at painting the Leopard. What. An. Idiot!
I can’t paint cats of any sort. They’re too wonderful for me to try to paint. But I gave it a go and although the finished result isn’t a total disaster, no self-respecting Leopard would want to own up to being the Leopard which Cobs put together like some really bad painting by numbers jovial delight.
I told Mr.Cobs that I couldn’t put it on the blog as it wasn’t good enough. He disagreed and told me to post it. So … I’m posting it … but it’s his idea it’s here, so we’ll blame him.
And that’s all there is to today’s show and tell!
You got past Monday then? Good-o! Well that means there’s only 4 days left, now that sounds MUCH better than the original 5. Not only that, but the original 5 had that most awful of days in it … Monday. The four days you have here doesn’t have any day beginning with the three letters: Mon. No ‘Mon’ at all. None of the remaining days even have even just one of those letters in their own first three!
Check it out: Tue. Wed. Thu. Fri. See? No M. No O. and finally …. No N. Isn’t this now the greatest week on earth, ever??!!
Wishing you a terrific Tuesday, filled with a little laughter, some lovely smiles and … a smattering of love.
Have a thoroughly groovy one, my friends ~
