You're no artist, eh?
(first ever painting)
I did quite well in 10th grade chemistry. I routinely got tests returned with A's and 100% written in red on top with notes that said, "You're no artist, eh?" I can't remember the details, but I guess there were diagrams and things to draw in order to get to the correct answers. My teacher was right. I'm no artist.
Working against type I started painting back in May. What's come out is a collection of very childlike and colorful images. I suppose if I turned them in I'd get a similar response back in red ink, but that's not what it's about. I've gotten a kindergarten-esque satisfaction from sitting down with the brushes and colors every day.

Thanks to DCBlogs for highlighting this post today! What a great surprise.
