pain and paint

my knee hurts - ow ow ow

the 18 year old mentioned in the previous post was just in a car accident going home from prom. she's okay but she's banged up quite a bit. :( i guess i can't complain about my knee. it is a MAJOR miracle she is okay considering the descriptoin of the accident.

my husband is in texas for the week. my mom is coming up and hanging out with me. last night we played scrabble and i scored over 400 points in the first game!! whoot! i played zealot on a 3Xword square and vegan and squint and axis. i had really good letters that game. the next game neither of us did as good. tonight we played with acrylic paints and i did the ugliest picture EVER. i am so insanely proud. i should take pictures and post them.

actually...i think i will :)


flower flower
this is the ugliest thing i have ever seen. it started out trying to be a dandilion. then i added petals because it was just so darn yellow. the background is actually pretty cool but you can't see it for the GIANT UGLY FLOWER. i have to say, while the first petal i put on there gave me great pause and a fit of giggles i actually like the rest of them on there. LOL.
feather feather
so this is just in it's first stage. i'm trying to decide what to paint on top. i was thinkikng flowers based on something i saw at the zoo gallery but i'm still deciding. it actually reminds me of the beach here (blue sky/green ocean).
peacock peacock
okay - for THIS one i want to glue a peacock feather across the middle. a really really big peacock feather that will mostly fill the page. i have water, air, earth, and fire represented here...thought i'd point it out since NO ONE would notice. i held up a peacock feather against it and darn it - it really looks cool. i'll update once it's added :)
scabble scabble
check it out! i did Vegan, Zealot, Axis, Cringe, Squinty, Midwife, Japed, Ruse, Rosin, and some of the other words. I was really proud of zealot :) Mom did chive and dandy - i would have liked to claim those, too, but that's wrong.

Ok, so is there somtething wrong with me that I DON'T think your flower is the ugliest thing ever?? I think it's cute! I see art like that all the time at the fancy resorts. It's very 'folksy' and people pay a lot of money for stuff like that.
I think it would look great in a sunny kitchen, and that it has a great sense of whimsy about it. Plus, I really like the blue petals. It reminds me alot of the other watercolor that you have hanging on your wall by the china cabinet.


I want to see the other ones when you're done with them too!

seriously, you have no idea how happy i am to hear that. i had a total blast smearing paint everywhere but for the life of me it was the ugliest thing i'd seen EVER until i put in the petals. but what should i do with the blue green one?? i have no idea. i want to do a bouquet of daisies but if i try to paint something real i just make myself sad - LOL.

oh - and um... any somewhat requests if someone where to throw a bunch more paint on a canvas and call it a gift? I AM SO SUBTLE! YAY!!

You're just so creative. And smart.
