I am bad at many things (such as sleeping, controlling my sweet tooth, and avoiding the many gray hairs that are starting to pop out on my head). But arguably the thing I am worst at is drawing. Or painting. Or anything that involves sketching with a pencil or crayon or writing object. It's a fact that an aardvark with a pencil duct taped to it's paw could draw better than me.
I was ready to tackle a challenge and fight to improve my poor drawing skills. The perfect opportunity arrived a few days ago at the kid's birthday party when I volunteered to be the expert face painter.
I asked the kids what they wanted me to paint. And I made a conscious effort to not deny any request. Which led to some interesting creations. Behold......
A BIRD! (Which became a pink bald eagle)
Picasso....I'm not. I don't plan to quit my day job anytime soon to become a famous artist. I will not be waiting by my phone for the Smithsonian Museum to request my latest art piece. But you better believe I'm going to jump at the next opportunity I have to paint a pink bald eagle.
