So, as Micko worked hard this weekend (like super hard) to help create my perfect space, I got in touch with old arty Karls and picked up a paintbrush for the first time in well over 10 years (since Uni, so probably more like 12).
Here's what happened...
Decided I wasn't a fan of the skin toned 'Micko'... it's a painting based around my favourite ranga and his black haired beauty - cute, huh? Perhaps a little sickly sweet... but poo to you haters.
Wasn't too sure about the rainbow thing I had going on in the top left corner... bit too busy.
Blended the rainbow - well, not really blend, more re-painted the area.
Also noticed I needed to blend poor Micko's face a little better!
And this, my blogging buddies, is the finished product.
It's no Picasso... but I am really happy with it.
It is going to look fab up on the wall of my office - which will likely be some kind of blue and purple (good colours for creativity).
The main reason I like it is because I had such a great time painting it! I felt happy - like real happiness (which I've not been feeling too much of late)... nice feeling!
It will be a constant reminder that I don't have to be perfect... all the time. I just have to be happy and enjoy who I am and where I am. That is enough for me.
