Drop in some color--on the paper!!


Have you ever had a day where you are just out of sorts...clumsy, feeling fat...and just kinda mad for no real reason? So, to make myself feel better I just wanted to drop in a little color into something and maybe write something in calligraphy so I sat down and dropped some india ink and Dr. Martins concentrated watercolor into these little flowers. My hand hit the little bottle of the magenta india ink and it "dropped in" all over my pants and sprayed my new Talbots shirt. Why do I paint with nice clothes on?! ARGGG!!! (#$##@%#--aka gosh dang it--and that's southern for... oh shoot!) Oh well, I felt fat in the pants anyway but the shirt had pink flowers on it and it splashed into the pink flowers and ...well on the bright side... it didn't even show! That was a miracle--really! So the moral of the story is...among any tragedy there is always a little miracle. The pants are a goner though.

Martha,

Oh I hate days like that. But on the positive side those flowers and calligraphy are TERRIFIC. I am glad you share the good and the bad, reminds us all we are just human. By the way I love the fun earth calligraphy you posted on Calligr Fun page.

Your flower piece is gorgeous! I'm sorry your pants had to take one for the Art du Jour team. :)

Now Martha, I've seen you in some pictures, and you are just about the farthest thing from fat!...your flowers are so charming, even if you did ruin your pants...but, I've already seen what you did, turning them into really cool art pants...so everything worked out just fine and dandy! (and...no more fat thoughts for you, Missy!) xo Paulette
