Well our lovely Jenn
sure knows how to close the year with a bang.
One of the things I most dread
is the old still life.
Now this week has been crazy, mad, insane
and any other words you can think of.
You see my eldest has turned 21
and she is having a party tomorrow,
so of course I am running around like a nutter
trying to get ready and make table decorations etc.
So the chances of me doing a still life with 5 items
are nil, nada and nutt.
I went through my area of old canvasses
that didn't make the grade and
decided to let you see my more
embarrassing moments in paint.
Many years ago, I decided to try a painting lesson.
Now I thought a painting lesson meant just that, a painting lesson,
as in a teacher who showed you what to do.
Boy was I wrong.
I got there and she went through my goody bag
and said "We don't use pencils or crayons of any kind here,
you just get out your paints and paint".
Panic set in and I said that I hadn't been taught how
but she just said do your best.
She plonked this table with some bits on and said
you have and hour now go.
I had oil paints!!!
So, I give you my way out of perspective,
conglomerate of things,
five if you count everything in the picture,
for this last APR for the year.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone,
this is my last post for 2012.
See you in 2013.
To see some proper still life's
go to Jenn's
and see how it should be done.
