The Toy Jungle - Part 3 - Take My Quiz!


Much to my joy, I've managed to snatch a couple of hours today away from work, work and  more work to progress my latest artistic endeavour.

I'm so excited to show you that I've *finally* finished the initial blocking in of my Toy Jungle painting.  Yay!

Despite the fact that this painting isn't quite complete (I still have a little more work to define and adjust values here and there), I figure there is sure to be something contained within the image that will appeal to just about everyone, whether it be hard or soft, matt or shiny, big or small.

In order to celebrate our toy preference differences and because I love nothing more than a pointless quiz, I've gone ahead and created my very own questionnaire here, just for you!  (You can thank me later.) Prepare to be amazed by what you discover about your inner-most self simply by looking at my painting and answering the following easy question.

Kate's Pointless Toy Jungle Quiz

1.  Which is your favourite toy in this painting?
a) Elephant
b) Winnie the Pooh
c) Lego Man
d) Stuffed Toy
e) One of the other toys not mentioned here

That's it.  Done. Finished. Easy!

Now, read on to find out something about your inner-most self. Prepare to be amazed and astounded by my (almost, nearly, not quite) psychic ability!

If you answered:

a) Elephant - You are a larger than life person who loves to stand out in a crowd! You also don't forget things in a hurry.
b) Winnie the Pooh - You are a kind and generous person who has lots of friends. You also love honey.
c) Lego Man - You like to play with Lego. When you were a kid you dreamt of being a builder when you grew up.
d) Stuffed Toy - You crave security and affection. You also like soft toys. In fact, I'd hazard a guess that you have at least one soft toy in your bedroom, hidden somewhere where you think no-one will find it. (Partners count!)
e) One of the other toys - You are an original. You don't conform with something just because other people think you should.


How'd I go? Amazed? I know, I know, I know - I'm honestly not sure how I do it, either. ;-)

See you 'round soon!



  1. Loving this painting, Kate!

    Hmmmmmm, if I had to vote on just one, I'd say D. Must say I'm in awe of your psychic ability - it's uncanny... ;-)

    1. Thanks for taking the time to comment Anonymous, I'm glad you like it! Awwww, D. I like that one too. It's not as shiny and big and obvious as some of the other toys, but I feel like it has soulful looking eyes.

  2. I love the picture! It is a beautiful array of colours and fun and memories of childhood. I chose C, but I think that the lack of quality of my constructions as a child ensured that I would not become a builder in later life:-)

    1. Awww Darren, I hope I didn't open some old wounds there with your lego building. I'm glad that you like the painting and all the colours!

  3. Fantastically colourful painting and I love the elephant. :)
    I think you have a great talent and I do so wish I was able to paint half as good. :)

    1. Awwww, thanks Jan for your kind words. I'm really glad to hear from you and that you like my painting!


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