why not?

I've been having a lot of fun with my paintings lately.  And by that I mean, I've been throwing a lot of indoctrination to the wind and working on paintings the way I can only imagine my ten-year-old self would (if my ten-year-old self had an academic training).  I think the biggest stumbling block I picked up at school was the knowledge of how little I knew and the corresponding fear of trying things I knew were outside of that knowledge.  But a ten-year-old doesn't think, "I don't know how to paint a flying bee," a ten-year-old paints a flying bee, and gives it a smiley face.  So, I have been giving my paintings (metaphorical) smiley faces :)  

flying bee :)

totally arbitrary background :)

 Sidewalk treasure :)  or, leftovers? (still in progress)
