"Cut Tomato"

Generally after twenty minuets of painting, my left hand tends to have around ten different paintbrushes wedged between my fingers. I use a new brushed for each new color so, as you can imagine, my left hand fills up quick. I look like Freddy Kruger or Edward Scissorhands (except with paintbrushes instead of scissors, or knives). And, well, it gets kind of dangerous. If I am lazy and decide not to change into a painting shirt all it takes is one small itch on my neck and then, BAM...I have a new painting shirt. Which is always kind of sad and happy. Goodbye nice shirt, hello paint shirt.

Thats so funny what you do with your paintbrushes, I do the same thing.:)I get the perfect color on a brush and I'm not ready to wash it out.

The reflections in this painting are very nice. And the colors are nice also. Good work

I can SO identify!!! I don't know how many items of clothing have become relegated to the "painting clothes" heap! I too am a little sad, and then shrug it off because there's nothing I can do about it and it WAS my own fault; too lazy to change.....and always thinking "THIS time I won't let it happen!"

My wife buys my clothes, and she gets reeeeeeally pissed when I turn an article of my clothing into a"now you can only wear it to paint in".

Your post made me howl laughing . . . and gasp at your color work. Wonderful! Maybe I should go with the new brush for each color.
