The Bug and the Owl

The owl ?loves to play with his friend. One time they played hide and seek together. Even one time when they were with their cousin they whispered, “We’re going to have some cookies at home without our cousin, and she’s going to be mad.” And then the cousin got mad because she wanted to hear so she said, “Can I hear? Tell me!” And both of them said, “No.” The end.

I painted the picture and on the first part I had to trace some of the outlines of the owl. Then the workers put wax on it. And then we painted it, and then we waited for it to dry and then when it was dry they made it into a little tube like a telescope and it has tape around it so it wouldn’t undo. And when we got home, we undid the tape and we saw our picture! This is called “batik.”

    I really like this owl Marie. I especially love the blue background and the owl’s red spots. 🙂 I hope I can make a Batik painting with you next time.

    Thank you for explaining to us how to make a Batik picture, I didn’t know. I like your picture and your story…I kind of felt bad though for the cousin that they wouldn’t tell the secret ton nor give cookies.

    This is such a beautiful batik picture, Marie. I really love it. The background looks like such a pretty blue sky – and the colors on the owl are wonderful.
