HAHAHAHAHA. That cracks me up.
Anyway, I painted something last night and it's a good thing.
I named it "Up Through the Weeds." We've had this frame hanging around for a bit - it used to have a different word painting in it - one I painted way back in the beginning of time that said FRAGILE. As I wrote in the description of this painting in my Etsy store, I love the juxtaposition of a sweet painting with a rustic frame. Yes, that is a nail hole. Genuine barnwood - that's pronounced GEN-YOU-WINE, by the way - straight off some old barn. We had to take down our barnwood samples at work ages ago because people just didn't get that the wood really did come off a barn. Nail holes, moss, scrapes and scratches, light gray, dark gray, light brown - we had no control over all that fun stuff so the moulding hardly ever matched the samples. I'm glad I finally found a good home for this frame.
P.S. Poodle and I did go for a last-day-of-winter run outside. I also ate about 85% good crap on that day, so there's two legs of my trifecta accomplished in one day. I didn't paint anything, tho. Not unless you count the 5"x7" canvas panel that I painted a solid blue. I'm not counting that. I did, however, cross another item off my list of March to-do stuff, but it was a small task I accomplished by necessity only. Sweeping the kitchen floor. I filled poodle's lunch box (it's a plastic Wonderbread container the size of a sandwich) and when I stood up my arm hit the handle of the stove. Poodle food went everywhere. Oops. What a dope.
