Baa-Baa, Yellow Swirly Sheep

Today's post features three little works of art featuring Baa-Baa, Hoot-Hoot and Boris.  (I'll leave it up to you to work out who is who.)

They are the results of a special commission I received this week to create some artwork for a very loved and adored little boy's bedroom wall.  As he is only just over a week old, I think I can safely say he is my youngest fan! ;-)

I used acrylic paint to create them and made a conscious choice to use a combination of bold colours and simple lines in order to produce three happy animal critters which hopefully will bring a smile to his face when he is a little older.   This was a very interesting experience as it was a quite a different style of painting from what I've tried before.  I am quite happy with the results.

I hope you like them, Olly!

Lots of Love, Aunty Kate


  1. omg they are SO cute!! I particularly like the sheep one as I'm a spinner and love anything sheepy. I also love the owl because I developed an owl addiction this year. I have no idea how or why, I just fell in love with owls...... And the cow is just plain cute. Great work! xx

  2. Oh I love those pieces. The lamb is my favorite. I'm sure the little fella will love them too.

  5. For some reason, I've started developing an owlnaddiction too. How strange

  6. You'll be pleased to know that they have been put up on the wall :)

  7. Yay! I'm so glad that you like them and they are up on the wall. I've seen photos and they are really cute! Enjoy, Olly! xo :-)


Thank you very much for reading and taking the time to comment. I get so excited and love reading what you have to say!
