She hung up the newest contraption guaranteed to eliminate all pests bio and electronic.

” We’ll see, ” she flopped a muskrat on the grill looked over the last series of citations and warnings she

had received from the latest congress and poured her homemade special 5 barbecue sauce over the

carcass.  Five new senates had been formed this year alone she thought, and it was only July.

” I told you the only way to handle them damn bug drones is to pick em’ off one by one, my slingshot is

over there sister have a go. ” He said.

” Yeah and if you get caught they’ll come by and cattle prod you with that new taser-laser thing-a-ma-giggy

like they did Annie last week.

” So, are you going to the fire works tonight?” He said.

Now it is your turn what would happen next?...

2.

Paint a still life which is anything you set up to paint, fruit in a bowl with a plate or cloth is a great first watercolor,

Get arches watercolor paper, hot pressed and a small set of watercolors, Derwent is a good company- the easiest place to buy these items is A.C. Moore or an art store if one is near where you live, surprisingly A.C. has, arches paper which is the best low-end watercolor paper, other types of paper could tear with the water used but not always, Windsor Newton has great brushes,

  set up your still life looking for good patterns and colors, leave 4 hours to work ( or longer), with break and viola a masterpiece!

Paul Cezanne watercolors below

If you have a skull lying around use that!

Happy Holidays!!

Paul Cézanne (US play /sˈzæn/ or UK /sɨˈzæn/; French: [pɔl sezan]; 1839–1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century’s new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cézanne “is the father of us all” cannot be easily dismissed.
