On Saturday before the wedding, I was sitting by the sliding glass window in my living room reading my new How Magazine and just loving all of the cool looking graphics inside when I got an idea. Where I do my "quiet" reading is in the living room across from where I do my painting. We haven't done any decorating in there at all, so I keep a table up with paint tubes, jars, brushes, oil pastels, etc. all over it. My easel always has something in progress just waiting for the next "thing" to hit me.
The front cover of "How" had a little lady in a skirt holding a banner that said, "Pick Me". I knew that I had to use her somehow. I get this manic-ness about me, when I have an idea, I have to do it right then and there. The canvas that was sitting on my easel I had been stumped over. Not liking where it had gone or where it was going I just have to let something sit for awhile until I get a BUG and have to go with it. I ripped up the magazine, cut out stuff and just played. This is what I came up with and my sister caught it all on the camera.
