Nice one, Jinksy, did you obey the rules?
Nice! I always believe that it is how we handle our tools after using it that makes it more useful.Nice take!JJRod'z
I never leave enough time to clean my tools . . . :-/
Not just everyone would think of putting messy tools into verse.
oh but how beautiful the mess can be...true though as they are hard to go back and clean when you need....
Oh Penny ... this is so true! Love what you did with the photo, a masterpiece.
Clever take on the prompt...
I listened, I promise!:)
great use of the photo and a great reminder to clean your brushes
Nicely done and very true! :-)
lol.....so sweet, funny, succinct! I was too busy staring into Mr.Hart's (yes, that really was my old art teacher's name!) to follow rules! Ooooh - that mullet!!
Oh yeah RATS! I forget sometimes! thanks for the reminder-
ps....I meant his 'eyes' by the way!!
I still have a brush from my teen years. It is a makeup brush does that count? I paid a lot for it then. I wash it and still use it today.
lovely-- imaginative use of the prompt! xxxj
Nicely colored reminder. Brava!
Easier said then done. Great job.
Well done. Great blog. I'm new here. I'll be back!
This is the cardinal rule for artists whose brushes are expensive. But even house painters will say the same thing and these brushes are the hardest to clean.
I need to hang your poem up at my house! Very nice.
Yes house painting brushes need the same kind treatment - sometimes I'm good about washing them quickly :-)
:) My 4 and 10 year old used my expensive water color brushes the other day to paint me an acrylic painting. It IS great and I do LOVE it. I was horrified, thought to find my $40 paintbrushes with kids paint all over them ... dry and ruined. I took many deep breaths... ;P And keep reminding myself I will cherish these paintings for a long, long time. I will post them on my art blog soon...
True indeed!Anna :o]
Clever combination of creative flair on this week's prompt. I like it a lot, Jinksey.
Oh yeah you brought back some art-room memories there :)We had a list of such (useful) instructions which had underlying meanings but I never understood them then...
Another bravura performance with pen and bamboo both.
