Which of these glasses are more useful?
(Answer at the bottom of the post)
For pretty much the whole of this year
I have been struggling with my painting.
I've blamed loss of mojo,
lack of ability,
lack of inspiration,
lack of just about everything.
My work was wonky and just not right
and this weekend I had an epiphany.
I was sitting in bed trying to read the sunday paper,
with my eyes streaming tears and terrible
stabbing pains in my right eye ,
dang this rotten hayfever I was spurting.
Then it happened,
I closed one eye and couldn't see a thing,
then I closed the other eye
(yes, I opened the other one back up)
and couldn't see a thing either.
A trip to the optometrist on tuesday
confirmed my suspicions,
I need new glasses!!!!
(These are my nasty old readers and if you noticed the nose thingy on the right, it isn't painted backwards. It is on the wrong way and I never noticed until I just painted them).
The optometrist was amazed I could see anything at all,
she must have seen my quizzed look
and explained that I had not updated my reading glasses since 2006,
my sunnies since 2008 and my normal glasses since 2010.
Now I have never been a normal person,
just ask anyone who knows me,
and I have always had one long sighted and
one short sighted eye.
Now I have two shortsighted eyes but they aren't the same
Hence, I have trouble with perspective
and that's why my paintings have been so off
and why the walls keep jumping out in front of me.
By the end of next week
I should have three new pairs of glasses
and a new found
excitement with painting.
I'm sure that knowing the facts,
you will excuse the wonkiness
of this painting.
The answer to the question is:
The drinking glass!
At least I can enjoy some booze
while wearing a pair of these
Come to think of it
my sight would be the same
drunk or not!!
Hurry up new glasses!
I'm linking up to paint party friday
for the first time in ages.
