This weeks Artist's Playroom
Illustrate a Word.
I've gone one better
and made up a word to illustrate,
just had to be different.
My word is humutt,
it's a cross between a human and a mutt (say it with love).
Now a mutt doesn't have to be a dog,
(as it's commonly known)
it can be a parrot.
Oh yes, a parrot can easily be a mutt,
just take mine.
He loves to play ball
|toss that ball|
Even plays football
and has his spot on the couch.
but I think you get the idea.
I was going to break up the illustration into two words,
humutt for dogs and humrot for parrots
but humrot sounds too much like
something you would put hemorrhoid cream on,
so humutt for both it is.
You've seen my portrait of Charlie parrot
a few times, so I decided to paint Tracey Fletcher Kings
Okay, I've made Tracey wait long enough now.
This painting is a gift for you, Trace.
I did a one hour (made it a time limit)
watercolour of Tracey's gorgeous
little woofy dog,
Gee, after all the teasing I hope it isn't disappointing Trace.
Ladies and gentlemen I give you
humutt, my very first doggy painting!!
(Shame about the lousy photo,
this is shot no. 2343483754 and still can't get his @#%@# brown eyes to come out )
A close up
I used a photo from Tracey's blog
(thanks for letting me Trace)
so had to improvise a bit.
I've seen the real thing and I can tell you,
he's the cutest little fellow,
even if Traces often calls him Snart!!
So there you have it,
an illustration of the word
Cos, if you own a pet
you know that they are all
Actually I know some humans
who are part mutt!!
Not bloggers of course!!
If you want to see more words illustrated
just hop on over to Jenn's
and see what everyone else has done.
I'm going to try and get
a decent photo of Mushu,
wish me luck!
