The Nightmare

IMAG0012 My brother, two nieces and me went to Art Class as part of our Christmas gift. It was like a “wine and paint” class. People brought wine, we didn’t but should have, might have helped (lol).
We were painting a peacock feather. Of all the things to paint. So we start painting and I kept on saying to one of my nieces, “what flower are we painting?”
My painting wasn’t coming along to well, it didn’t look like a feather or flower. Said to my niece, “I’m gonna add a face to it.”
After we almost god done painting, one of the girls at another table yelled out at me, “I like your painting.” Lot of people started looking at it and one guy yelled out, “It looks like a nightmare,” and everybody started laughing.

I was thinking of the painting “The Scream” when I added the face. To me this looks like “The scream after invasion of the body snatchers.”

Dan Hicks “Tangled Tales”

Tangled Tales There were rumors of a new Rumpelton painting going around. I got it in the mail the other day.

I’ve been a fan of Hicks for a long time. Always like his “Folk/Jazz” music. Got to see him around 2003 and it was a great show.
