To paint or not to paint, that is the question...

As most of you now know, faithful blog followers (Hehe...I have you in my clutches now!), I have the attention span of a five year old.  Last month it was cards, last week it was cooking, yesterday it was gardening, and today it's painting.  My inner artist, she longs to be free!  Or at least portrayed on an extremely larger-than-my-husband-would-like-it-to-be canvas...lol.

I love abstract mixed media art in large sizes.  Exactly the kind of artwork that my husband doesn't understand...lol.  But that's why I love him.  He likes sleek lines and sharp edges and I like soft curves and sketched lines.  He likes the plain and simple and I like the over stuffed and complex.  Despite our differences, he's my lobster and we'll mate for life.  (Friends reference, anyone?  Maybe I'm dating myself with the lobster comment...lol.)

I'm going to try and fight the painting urge for one more day.  We'll see how long that lasts.  I'm supposed to be learning Italian right now, but instead I'm here blabbing on about wanting to paint.  See what I mean about the attention span? 

Italian lesson of the day: Le bambine stanno camminando.
Translation as far as I can tell via the picture on my Rosetta Stone: The girls are walking together.


  1. I got the lobster reference! (I watched that episode last week, hehe) and La'a is so your Lobster!! Why Italian? Are you going?

  2. I want to go to Italy so badly! Maybe in the next year or so depending on how my Mom is. :) I can't wait! We're going to Mexico on a cruise next May. So I really should be learning Spanish...lol.
