I want you to paint : 50 Mondays Left

We only have 50 Mondays left. The year just started but 50 Mondays really doesn't seem like that much to me. Number 30 on my (Monday Me Project) list was to paint a picture. Painting hasn't really been my thing, like, ever. But, John bought me these supplies and it isn't "that" expensive of a hobby. Plus, if I like it I can keep it for the house, gift it, or if not toss it!

My sister paints great but she doesn't think she does. I once found some of her art work in the trash. Since then, I have a "sister" gallery of all of her work. Now, her work blends with the kid art on the wall and my art on the wall.

(You can tell my sister's work in full disclosure. Let's hope my boys don't read this post but I am sure they would agree! The truth is we are our own worst critic. I could refuse to post this amateur canvas but being vulnerable is a good thing sometimes!)

Me Monday was created to make sure I felt like I finished something when I looked back on the year. Sometimes, us adults run on a hamster wheel doing things like laundry, cooking, dishes, checkbook balancing,earning money etc. only to find that the same stuff needs to be done the next day and the next day and the next day. You get my point right? So, here is what I accomplished this week. It is almost finished.

It is called,

"deux sous le parapluie sont mieux qu'un"

By the way, I googled "paint and sip at home videos" and found a video that inspired this. In the end you would never know that I was learning from YouTube because they look NOTHING alike but...... THERE ARE NO RULES IN ART!

On a side note: Art is contagious. See how we spent our snow day this week.
