I bet Picasso wasn’t neat.

The meester and I like to think we make a great team when it comes to doing things, like home projects or driving cross country. There were a few things we had to do before moving into our new house to make it feel like home for us. Things like painting (which, it needed anyway), replacing switch plates, toilet seats, shower heads, that sort of thing. Seeing as how we had limited time today to get things done, we worked as fast as we could, save for making sure that the dogs weren’t running trough the paint, which a certain little dog was doing pretty much all day, but whatever. We worked pretty quickly and got a good portion of the house done save for a couple of rooms, but by the time it was over, the meester had but a few specs of paint on him, and me? Well, I was covered in head to toe. He wondered how I had gotten so dirty, while I wondered how he had stayed so clean. His answer was that he’s anal compulsive and he probably had picked it up from painting in his room and making sure he didn’t get it anywhere. When it comes to things like painting, I like to get my hands dirty and feel like I accomplished something. There’s something satisfying about it. Like when you used to make mudpies as a kid and just let yourself get filthy. By the time we left, both Miss M. and I were covered and the meester and G-man were virtually paint free. Like mother like daughter I guess.

I bet that people like Van Goh and Michelangelo made mud pies.

I’m with you. I even have special “paint clothes” that are art pieces unto themselves.

I paint the same way… messy and in painting clothes.

I miss making mudpies…
*sigh*

Half the sweats I own have paint on them. There’s something not right about being able to paint and not get any anywhere but on the intended wall.

I have paint on clothes that I’m pretty sure I never painted in. It’s freaky.

I swear you could be talking about my husband and I. :o )

I’m like your meester…I can dig in the dirt in white clothes and be clean at the end of the day. It’s weird.

Paint = messy fun in my world. It sounds like you guys have been quite busy!
