Painting Accident


I had an hour set aside for art, and I decided 'what the heck' and broke out the acrylics. A little over an hour later, I came to, blinking and covered in paint, with 18 little paintings finished. Some of them I'm iffy on, some of them are okay, and some of them, I really, really like. Most of them are very thick (though not all), so it may be a day or two before they dry completely and I can scan them. I had to scrub paint off of my computer desk, and my back hurts because I couldn't stay in my chair to finish them; the light was bouncing off of the wet all wrong. I've got to figure out a better painting posture.

Oh, and I also managed to get green paint on the cat. She didn't appreciate that.
