It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.


My "Art"

As I've told many of my blogging friends, my artistic abilities are zip, zilch, zero, nada, goose egg! :) Hence, the drawing that you see below is a *cough* display of my artistic endeavors:

Well, I can also doodle stars, but that's about it. Even now, you can see that this drawing was rendered on the computer (where I am at home LOL). Half the time, my little stick figure creations on actual paper have lop-sided heads due to the fact that I can't draw a nicely rounded circle very well! Yes, I do sometimes wish back the days of kindergarten where you were simply given a coloring sheet and all you had to do was grab your box of Crayolas and get to work...I distinctly remember having the most trouble coloring a duck. I mean, aren't duck bills more reddish than orange (hey, I was five)! Therefore, shouldn't I color the duck bill a nice shade of fire engine red? :)

When I did do my own drawings back then, my characters looked more like "potato people" than anything else! An example:

As you can see, my artistic abilities have advanced some, but not too much! :D Elisabeth insists that she's sure I could do better if I really tried. ;) little stick figure resents the implication that she is possibly not very well drawn! :OD Hey, I think there might be some similarities between her and someone else we know. What do you think?

You know what, wait, don't answer that! LOLOL ;)
Well, after this very pointless post (during which I've come to the conclusion that I need to stick to photography :D) I shall close! Good-bye! :)

Who's been telling you you can't draw??? Why, you're right on par with all the other modern artists! Hey--just get out a ruler and draw a straight pencilled line from one end to the other. Voila! Or if that's too hard, paint the whole canvas one nice shade of blue. Presto! Modern art!
Love ya!

That was a really funny post. I rather liked those stick figures. I can't even do that well!
You are very good at blog designing, so that makes up for any lack of artistic ability you may have. Although, I bet that you are actually pretty talented.
