I don't have any siblings and have no idea what that family circumstance would be like but I do have some very good friends - including some who visit me here. I like that. A few years ago when I first started blogging I'd pretty much given up drawing and painting mostly because very few people ever saw them. It's just not the done thing to drag your artwork to your job to show co-workers the results of non-work related work and besides that, if you've mentioned you paint and people insist they're usually taken aback by my subject matter. No landscapes? No pictures of fruit or flowers? Where do you come up with that stuff?
I finally began painting this one yesterday and just got to this point about an hour ago. I'm not sure if it's finished but I got tired and decided it's done enough for the moment. Generally it takes a week or two to paint something I'm sure to be happy with but right now I need to loosen up by working fast. Besides, I couldn't let another whole weekend go by without something new and silly to show my friends.
