Brain Freeze

Kupri - desktop painting

Brrrr – too cold to paint today so, because my desk is right next to a cosily warm radiator, I thought I’d write instead. After gazing for a while at the swirly colours of a painting I have resting on a little easel on my desk top and then back at a blank screen, I realised I had another problem. Brain freeze.

A fun list with fun answers. I will do this when I have writer´s block. That little painting on the easel is adorable, if I may use that term. It´s so colorful and perfectly put down. You are very lucky to be so talented and to be able to make such happy paintings. I am sure you cheer the people around you with them terribly. I must try this in my creative therapy class.

I like it. Such fun. Well done on what is actually not as easy as thought at first glance. I think I might just take this and use it myself soon.
