    Day 145…lemons.

    I realized a couple of things last night while I was painting. One, I enjoy popping in random colors that don’t necessarily fit the subject matter. Last night was lemons. Which calls to mind lovely shades of yellow. Which I did start with, but before long my brush was loaded with magenta and then Cobalt teal. And now I have very colorful lemons.

    The second thing I realized was that I really and I mean Really like making a mess. Which is rather funny. When I started painting a few years ago, I put enormous effort into trying to keep my water and paint exactly where I thought it should be. Now I just load up my brush with as much water and paint as it will take and let it go all over the place. And if it doesn’t seem “messy” enough, I help it escape to do it’s thing.

    Which means when I am done painting,not only is there paint all over my page, but all over me, the table, the floor and occasionally a cat or two that wandered by while I was painting. 😃
