OK, I admit it....


I am a Mary Freeman wannabee. I just love how she does her paintings with all that yummy color and as I was spraying painting and splattering the messed up pants I decided to spray paint and splatter a failed canvas painting that I needed to paint over. I do love to look of graffiti with the bright colors and lettering---which I also wish I could do. It is very difficult to do that style of lettering. Anyway, Mary, if you see this...here's to you my friend!!!!

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of
that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.
