When life gives you...

I have been thinking about the latest theme for Pocketful magazine which I am an ongoing contributor. The themes are challenging for me, but I am up for a challenge. It usually takes me a couple of tries before I come up with the one I like. The theme for issue 4 is "All that is solid melts into air”


So, I started this illo, and it's not exactly what I had in mind!! Sometimes my paintings just take on a life of their own! Do you know the saying,,,,"When life gives you lemons,,,,make lemonade"?
Well, I'm calling this painting,,,, "When life gives you poop,,,,get a dog"!!!!

ok, back to the drawing board!!!

Just too funny. I have two Chihuahuas who are being little brats right now. Since it's been a little wet outside lately, they've decided to poop under the dining room table...ewww! So I have plenty of poop in my life right now, thank God it's only from 2 Chihuahuas!! LOL
