Last week, I helped with a fundraiser. Among other things, this involved making a couple of signs to post on the street, pointing folks THIS WAY!
After a frustrating half-hour of scribbling with Sharpies to make letters readable from a distance, I pulled out my widest paintbrush and Chromacryl paints. These suckers are about two decades old, purchased from some enterprising lady hawking student acrylics at my grade school. Should I have tossed them years ago? Probably. Did I instead hang onto them for their much-vaunted hour of need? But of course. Slightly goopy, but they got the job done!
Since then, paint’s been in the back of my mind. I’ve got 3 different sets of watercolor tubes, 2 sets of oil paint, 1 set of acrylics, to say nothing of various markers, colored pencils, pens, and oil pastels.
I should paint something, I thought yesternight, digging out old watercolor paper that had been divided into quadrants with painter’s tape 5 years ago and never used. But what?
And then I saw this post, and figured a seal was as good a place to start as anywhere.
What should I paint next?
What have y’all drawn or painted lately?
