If you give a painter a camera…


she’s going to want to take pictures of her work. When she does, she’ll want to load them up on her computer.

so she’ll ask her husband “how the heck?”  He’ll probably have to show her how the heck a hundred times.

When she’s got the hang of it, she might get carried away and stay up all night.

In the morning, she will know whole new ways to shift her work.

And if there are new ways to shift her work, she’ll want to paint more canvases.

When she finishes the canvases, she’ll want to take even more pictures of her work.

And chances are if she’s going to take pictures of her work, she’ll want a fancy new camera to do it with!

I hope it gave you a smile today, along with these experiments in painting and photography.
