That title is misleading. This isn’t a post about paint by numbers although it is a post with numbers on paintings.
Way back on that one random picture of the day post I implored you to pick which pair of shoes was mine (I’m riveting these days I know) and even offered “bonus points” to the winner. Bonus points. I’m like skee-ball giving you a hundred more tickets and a free rubber bracelet.
Anyway, Mavis was the first person to correctly pick out my cowboy boots and when I offered her some original Petey artwork as a prize . . . get this . . . she accepted. Crazy. This world is crazy that a random internet reader would actually want my kids’ artwork!!!!
Okay not so crazy considering I’ve known Mavis since first grade and she works at the same company as my mom and they chat sometimes.
I decided to use this opportunity to eek out another blog post so I don’t completely neglect the place in my newborn sleep deprived state. Sleep deprivation is a serious thing people and not to be underestimated.
Petey has painted several masterpieces lately and I thought it would be nice to let Mavis choose which one she wanted. I mean, it needs to match her decor, whatever that may be. I don’t even know where she plans on displaying it. Will she have it professionally framed with masterpiece glass to hang in the formal dining room? Will it be displayed on the fridge? Will it line her sock drawer? In that case she would need to pick a piece that coordinates with her socks.
So here are Mavis’s choices.
A washable Crayola paint masterpiece illustrating that when you mix colors together, no matter which ones, you get brown. Always brown.
Another Crayloa paint piece . . . I think it’s a guinea pig with wings eating a snack. Oh and he’s wearing blue shoes on his hind paws. And he has a pink eye.
Do you see it now?
Here we have Petey’s watercolor phase . . . entitled “Mama Still Hasn’t Found Where That Teal Color Dripped on the Floor.”
And another depicting some lovely color gradients.
In the interest of full disclosure, this last piece wasn’t all painted by Sweetey Petey. He said “mama paint” and handed me a paint brush. So I helped. Here’s the part I did.
And just in case Mavis has realized she made a grave mistake and really doesn’t want Petey’s artwork, she can also pick one of mine titled “Using Up The Paint So I Don’t Have To Wash It Down The Sink aka Why Does The Toddler Get To Have All The Fun?”. The Husband thinks it easily looks like a six year old could have painted it. So there’s that.
Sooooooo Mavis . . . which one is it going to be??
Question of the Day: Which one would you pick? What’s your favorite? Tell me you see the guinea pig.
