The paints came out last week. Splash! Splish!
A blue elephant now dances across a dinner plate.
A once-upon-a-time metal spoon holder now pirouettes in the breeze.
This morning the Husband set up the portable table outside so I can play at being an artist. I envision a white pan being painted into a turtle, chicken wire being mangled into the shape of an elephant, and a branch being cut and put back together into something, maybe an asterisk.
If any of those things turn out well, it becomes my entry for garden art in next month's county fair.
We shall see.

Good luck with the fair enteriesReplyDelete
Coffee is on
You already have beautiful garden art hanging in that tree! I want to see the *!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sallie, :-) I started on another tree because I can't reach the bare branches without getting the ladder....I cut branches this morning for the asterisk.Delete
Everything should get painted! Have you ever heard of Maud Lewis? It's a good movie too, Maudie.ReplyDelete
I saw Maudie around the time I started playing with paints. Her story inspired me to explore, to be less hesitant about just expressing myself without thinking.Delete
Yes, totally play at being an artist. My uncle frequently plays with various mediums. (He posts various animations to YouTube.) Playing is the best way to do it.ReplyDelete
with excitement and joy.
What do you use to seal your beautiful artworks against inclement weather once they're hung? . . . I truly love how you use colour. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Widders. I have no idea what I'm doing. That's a good thing, me thinks. I haven't thought that far about sealing. Maybe I ought to.Delete
"play at being an artist?" - Friend, You ARE An ARTIST - Through and Through.ReplyDelete
I don't think of myself as one, thank you very much, G. I feel a fraud to say so, but maybe I ought to stop thinking that way and embrace it.Delete
You give me a blue elephant and I give you happy thoughts! I love the plate and the spoon holder is bright and cheerfulReplyDelete
Hooray for your garden art entries in the county fair, I love everything about that. I also love these pieces but want to see a white turtle pan.ReplyDelete
