Sunday Doodle - For Mynx!
You know its true love when he wants you to paint his pole! Mynx challenged us to doodle and show it off. Show off your goods no matter who says its art or its fart. That's what I say.
When I proudly told (pro) painter friend of mine Booby asked me to paint his pole (mast pole inside the boat) he looked at him and said "You want HER to paint that?" His shocked reaction told me very clearly he did not see me as an artist. I laughed it off.
The Canadian Council of the Arts says that if other professional artists perceive you as an artist then you are an artist, thus eligible for grants. If my (pro) painter friend was Canadian I would never have access to government grants. It's ok. I'm not living in Canada or looking for a grant. I just like to doodle. Normally my medium is Crayola markers. (Haha, I used the pro artist term for what you use to create your work of art) This time I went with acrylics. I have zero experience with acrylics. So of course, my canvas for my first piece is the pole smack dab in the middle of our boat!
Its a work in progress, even the Sistine Chapel wasn't created in a day. I started this over a month ago!
