Painting

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.
-- Danny Kaye


Flinging paint sounds like lots of fun. It's just the recklessness and abandonment of reason and edges, I think. Kind of like fingerpainting, getting all squishy and gooshy and IN to the art. Just like life, it's kind of got to be an immersive process. None of your namby-pamby, wishy-washy paintbrushes for me ... just start sloshing the paint around and LIVE!!!
