Painting Nightmare

K I haven't been doing any posting cuz there isn't really anything interesting to post about. my life has been going along like normal without any Major highlights.

Today, Nathan asked me if he could use my paints so he could paint a picture to enter in the fair in two weeks. I thought this was a good idea so I pulled out my art box and my brushes. (for those of you who don't know, I used to take an art class when I lived in MD and I had quite a few nice brushes, paints and art experience) I sat down with a black piece of paper in front of me and began to paint with reds, yellows and oranges. Also black. Black sometimes does show up on black nicely. Anyway Abby came into the room.

"Can I paint?"

"Not right now Abby. And NOT with these paints"

"Can I paint?"

"No!"

She went to get mom. meanwhile, Rachel came in the room. "I want to paint too!"

Before I knew it, all four of us kids were sitting around the table using my paints and panting with my nice five dollar and up brushes. *cringes*. I got a little stressed because not all of my sibs know how to use the brushes so they don't break the bristles. ok, I was FREAKING OUT! it didn't help that the dogs were running around like mad around the kitchen. Nothing really bad happened to my brushes (luckly) but I don't think I want to go though that again any tine soon. It was a painting Nightmare. I did end up with a nice piece of finished work though.

i had thies really nice brushes and one day I was painting something. later that day i want to my gandma's house (I had the brushes soking so they wouldn't dry up). When I got home I found out my brother had been messing around in my room and he knocked the cup over and all the foggie water was all over my carpet! :-O And my brushes got dryed up too.
