This morning the house was finally emptied of sick children and other obstacles. Everything was ready for a wonderful and long-awaited painting session. Coffee poured, the stove roared nicely. Painting day, finally!

I had waited and sighed soooo long for this day to come! And then:

– Ready to GO!!?

– I CAN´T BE BOTHERED!

-What? Oh no, honestly, you have longed so much for this moment and now it is here!

-Yes, but I AM JUST NOT IN THE MOOD!

-Why not?

-I am afraid! (maybe she’ll feel sorry for me ….)

-What are you afraid of?

-(Oh no, she´s in question-mood, better come up with a real good reason, ahem…):I am afraid….I have ….forgotten…. HOW TO PAINT! (HA!)

 -Forgotten how to paint? You can´t forget how to paint, you just paint….even dots are good for starters.

-Well, actually I am afraid that I CAN paint, what if  I am a brilliant genious, I am not up to a commitment like that … I am sure it will be really really hard with all the overwhelming success and fame and too many requests for me to handle!!! (Surely she wil buy this one, I know she loves to have big thoughts about herself, hahaaa!)

-Are you afraid of that? Is that the REAL reason you don´t want to paint?

-All right no, not really…….. it is simply because I CAN´T BE BOTHERED!

-You can´t be bothered?

-No, I CAN´T BE BOTHERED!!!

-Well, you know, that’s alright.

(What, she said it´s ALL RIGHT! Now we´ll take the day off and watch a good movie in bed, yeeaaaah, ta-ta-ta-daaa-di- dum-di -dum-da…)

-Listen, here´s what we´ll do:

-(Movie, movie, mooooviiie!!!)

1. First we dance 10 minutes to beautiful music, just move for a little while as you like, neither more nor less, are you ok with that?

-….OK

Flying vision

(“Joy in the air”, original available, just e-mail me)

2. Then, we fill the palette with colors and made the table ready, all right?

-Yeah, I guess

3. Last, we´ll take a canvas and play around with papers and colors, no intentions of making art, just having fun, ok?

-Well, if it´s only for fun….

And now it´s time for a good movie…and a glass of red wine….

Be gentle

(“Be gentle”, print available here)

….or maybe I will just continue painting…or do them all at the same time; paint, wine and movie!

So, there you have it, now you know what goes on in my head on a completely normal thursday!
