“Bendy Autumn Tree”

Aside from photography, I am a terrible visual artist. I can’t draw, paint, or sculpt. At all. This, I get from my father, as my mother and brother are both excellent draw-ers. Me? Not so much. My gift of visual art has been limited to being able to (mostly) stay in the lines when handed a coloring book and some crayolas. And I can print quite neatly when there are lines on the paper already. That’s about it.

So, when skulking around Michael’s or JoAnn’s, as I am sometime want to do, I thought it would be a bright idea to buy some paints and canvas. Oh yeah-brushes. I will need brushes, too, I thought. For less than $25 bucks (I bought cheap brushes), I had a sack full of art just waiting to happen.

They are taking over the apartment.
