**FREE** PainTiNG

I've noticed that a lot of people in BloGlAnd give away FrEE stuff. So now I'm doing it so I can get in on all the fun.

Yesterday I was at Michael's and saw that they had lemon drops on sale for a dollar! I don't particularly like the taste of lemon drops but I did like the packaging.
...I thought, "I will paint a lemon drop painting." So I purchased the lemon drops for my inspiration and drove home. To my bewilderment, after a few minutes of searching, I realized I was OUT of yellow paint.
Everything yellow was used up.
Paint, Oil pastel, chalk, even my cow marker was more orange than yellow.

So.. I decided to paint my lemon drop painting with REd, I have lots of red.
So instead of painting lemon drops, I painted WITH the lemon drops.

All that to say, this lovely ReD drop painting (18"x24") can be shipped your way. Heck, I'll even throw in the fabulous tools I used to create it. All you have to do is tell me you want it and promise to send me a tube of yellow acrylic paint once you receive my masterpiece in the mail. I'll do a drawing for the lucky winner.

Yee Haw!My "tools" that now look like olives instead of sugary lemon drops.

okay you are a funny funny girl!
only a true artist would:
A) decide to use lemon drops as inspiration
and
B) paint so often she runs out of an entire color in every medium she owns!
and
C) decide to paint with the candy instead!

girl, i will send you yellow paint just for that!
(but put my name in your drawing too!)

btw - where are you painting these days? it looks like there is some sort of radiation glow going on down there in the basement! tell vito to build you a proper art studio! :)
