Paint Paint Everywhere!


I realised this morning that while I'm painting, the paint splatters have covered, yes covered the keyboard of my computer. I should have taken a photo of my laptop to show you the disgrace!
With lots of spraying of cleaning fluid and scraping, I managed to get it off. All I have to do now is to remember to move it away from me while I'm throwing paint around!

The very top picture is a little bit misleading because I've actually been working on my table rather than with the easel.

This is where it usually is...
The laptop lives just to the left of where I have the painting, (just out of camera shot.)

Right in the line of fire!





I'm still in the process of painting that one and this one above. This one is almost finished but I need to decide whether to do more to the tree in the foreground. Whaddayathink?

Here are two finished ones...






Scraping, splattering and runny paint.

My laptop is now shiny and clean,

now the floor and walls...that's another thing!

He, he, he, I get paint everywhere when I paint too. In fact last night I looked in the mirror as I was getting ready for bed only to find black paint all over my face. x

Hi Doodlestreet, I wouldn't have bothered but it had got to the point where I couldn't read the letters!
Thanks Karen, I'd never have thought it! :)
