BARE CANVAS

Written by Captain Mary on Thursday, October 09, 2008





I am beginning my re-decorating projects around the house. With the gang moving on, I have rooms in the house to put together and paint and personalize. I have some great ideas and the first thing I have to do is get back to a bare canvas. As an artist, I must look at this bare canvas and watch it grow into a work of art. But, I have to get rid of the last art work. The room that I am re-decorating was my granddaughter, Shy-Anne, it had a Sponge-Bob theme, you know with the jelly fish and the glow at night bubbles, it looked like the scene underwater.


The kids were over the house and doing their school work, I went to the local hardware store to get paint and much to my surprise I had a crew ready to work when I returned. We cleared the room of all the furniture and began the task of painting. My crew consists of a 5, 8, and 12 year old. I couldn't have asked for a better crew, they take no breaks and go and go. Three coats of primer later, the blank canvas was almost ready. I took some pictures of the crew, they are for hire if your interested.

    When I was a kid I hated painting. I remember when I was maybe 15 or 16 years old my father decided I'd be painting the house.

    One day he made a fatal mistake. He came out and said to me "I could get a four year old to paint better than that."

    My response was to climb off the ladder, hand my father the paint brush and say "Well get yourself a fucking four year old then." and walked away.

    Dad learned never to force me to do something against my will that day.
