Bad news, Mean People=Creativity

Sometimes the worst things in life bring out the best in people. I've been determined not to bring doom and gloom to homemade grits, but dang things are bleak in the world right now. As far as mean people go, we all deal with them. If only we could say what we think sometimes...or not! My slow comebacks probably save my butt. Do you ever replay in your head what you should have said over and over again? What a waste of time.

Anyways...my next project was a little 8 x 10 painting I did. I picked up my paints and paint brushes for the first time in years. I didn't want to do anything technical I just wanted to have fun. It was so relaxing. I missed the feeling of swirling my brushes in globby paint and bringing something to a blank canvas. The pictures aren't all that great, but here they are none-the-less.

That looks great! I'm feeling the itch to get my art on too. Maybe I should try to get more people to be mean to me... Yikes, I mean no, seriously no.
