Hmmm do I sense a theme here? It seems I’m in an arts and crafts mood this week! First a collage, now pottery…you would think I’m artistic. Which, unfortunately, is not the case. In fact I would even go as far to say I’m horrific at art. Terrible, awful, horrid, lousy, dreadful…so mind boggling repulsive is my art it brings small children and old ladies to tears. Just kidding. 🙂
Anyway there is a small back story to this list item, so bare with me while I explain. About five months ago, some dreary winter day, my father decided that then was the time for some long over-due father-daughter bonding. So what is there to do in the dead of winter, when the roads are slushy and the sky grey? Well, paint pottery of course. So that’s what we did in order to form a closer bond. (How I love my family and their quirky ideas.) But alas when we came back a week later to pick up our shiny new pottery, what did I see? A giant crack running down the side of my mug! After some profuse apologizing, we walked out with a broken mug, crushed spirits, and a gift card for $20 dollars, that has been gathering dust all these long months. So that is why I had to paint pottery this summer, otherwise when else would I?
Now let me describe to you, in great detail, the magnificent plate I painted. Lets see – its square, painted a bright yellow with a golden orange sun in the middle, and the words SUMMER 2012 painted in a light blue across the top. Its pretty snazzy if I do say so myself. Hopefully I will get it back, in one piece, when I go and pick it up next week.
Oh and randomly enough, next to the pottery shop there was a farm. With cows! Which lead to an impromptu photo shoot and ended with me receiving my first ever cow kiss. Score. 🙂
May the summer be ever in your favor,
