Nearly Picasso

November 10, 2010

It was to the point I was going to have to make another attempt at painting.  I was successful with the first one as well as the second one, and I was about to have to paint my own painting a third time—in which case you could have called me Picasso.

Speaking of Picasso—how about this Picasso quote? “When I was a child my mother said to me, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general. If you become a monk, you’ll be the pope.’ Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.”  Makes you think, right?  [P.S.  It was on the back of my Dilbert calendar a couple of weeks ago.  Look at Dilbert going all deep].

I digress. The point is, I was nearly forced to become Picasso.  We had been looking for a piece of art to hang above our bed ever since we had moved in.

The longer we looked, the pickier we became.

“No, not a photograph.  A painting.”  (Katie)

“No, not just black and white.  It needs to have red in it.” (Chris)

“No, not people.  Just flowers or landscape.” (Chris & Katie)

“No, not a landscape.  Just flowers.”  (Katie)

“No, it can’t be taller than it is wide.  It needs to be square, or wider than it is tall.” (Chris)

“No, it can’t be realistic, it needs to be abstract or impressionist.”  (Chris)

And I’m NOT even exaggerating.  Those are seriously all conversations that we had.  On trip #2,583 to Home Goods, we found the perfect fit.  Here it is, in all its glory.  (Well, except for the fact that the flash on my camera distorts the colors a little bit).

I think the wait was worth it.  What do you think?
