shines makes me good natured


Kitty Babendrier shoadowbox tag a Cheryl Kuhn piece (love his piercing eyes) Why is it?
The more you are told not to do something...the more you must?
Moth to a flame syndrome, I suppose.

Warn a sassy child not to touch an electric fence and certain screeching will occur.
A"watch your step" warning equates to an assured trip and a fall.
Speed limit 30...an inevitable speeding ticket.

Pinch your pennies, tighten your wallet means I am destined to want!

Well, that's how I feel lately. I know I should show some self control on this economic roller coaster...but that's like telling a unruly chocoholic they cannot partake in sweet treats at a chocolate factory.
Sometimes the pleasure is worth the pain.
So lately I've had addiction shakes for shines,baubles and little pretties .
Fancy little tin types, overly played with metal farm animals. I have no choice you see.

So I must tame the inner beast and throw a sacrificial lamb (or dollar) to the God of Want and Need.

Hmmm. I find your philosophy quite compelling...because it was just yesterday that I'd decided I really shouldn't buy one of your paintings, what with the economy and all...I may have to rethink that...because seeing one of your pictures each day would certainly make me feel good natured!!

I agree--Kitty and Cheryl make me think naughty :)
