Thank all of you for your kind comments on the last post, ´WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?¨ You´ve helped me wrestle my ego and lock it down where it won´t nudge me into trouble! Tim- Forester Artist made me chuckle when he commented, ¨They waited until you left. I think they’re afraid of you! ;)¨
Mary, of Oil Pastels by Mary, triggered a big smile when she wrote, ¨Long live paint brushes!
Marina lightened the mood by stating, ¨…please don’t “retire your urban paintbrush”!¨
I´ve always said that if one removes the ego from a conflict, the conflict usually vanishes. It´s been hard to reconcile this one, as if someone doesn´t speak up for the voice of the artists, then…. what? When does one watch from afar, and when does one become proactive?
Your feedback really helped keep this from beocming a burrrrrrr beneath my blanket, and I know first hand how loco that will make most horses!
These archive photos illustrate Mary´s point, and with a smile I present, ¨Long Live Paint Brushes!
Rewired & Retired Debbie in Nicaragua added, ¨Are these poles aluminum? Can they be painted? I’m armed with brushes and ready to help. Can you pick me up with your flying carpet?¨
Long Live Paint Brushes applies – no matter where one lives! Place happy art where you need it most – like Sarah Dettman did in her community laundry room! (below)
Have a painting party for a family gathering or paint together to jazz up a boring wall!
Clanmother commented, ¨ …I feel there will be a phoenix rising from the ashes.¨
Bluebrightly commented, ¨I hope that lemonade can be made from lemons, and the next competition, or the next flowering of public are in Jama, will be even more prolific and joyful.¨
I´ll be offline more days than on for the next few weeks. Have a great week, and thanks again for your compassion and support!
The phoenix will surely soar from the ashes and blaze a trail across the sky! Long Live Paint Brushes!
