In college, I really did have to draw and paint nude people, and I remember bringing home my paintings to show my parents who promptly said, “We don’t have to hang that up or anything, right?”
But then one day we were assigned a still life! I remember being excited about this for two important reasons:
1: because everyone in the class would have clothes on.
2: I could paint something purple!
My subject was a bowl of fruit and some small, purple flowers. Now as anyone who has ever oil-painted knows, it takes an eternity for the oils to dry. So, it was still quite wet when I brought it home. My parents were not wildly impressed with my latest creation, but at least they seemed relieved to know they wouldn’t have to “cover it up” before it went in the trash.
I laid the painting on a table in the basement and didn’t think about it anymore that day. However, our kitten, Tabatha, was apparently quite the art critic and took it upon herself to “enhance” my painting. She walked all over the painting, leaving tiny paw prints scattered all through the painting (not to mention purple paw prints throughout the house)!
I prepared to fix my painting and was surprised when my parents stopped me. At first glance, you really can’t even tell the paw prints are there. But once you study it, you start to see them throughout the painting. They liked having their own customized Hidden Pictures in a painting!
To this day, that painting is still hanging in my parents’ living room. It’s also the ONLY painting of mine they ever kept!
An Amazing Deal!
