Jealousy Rears Its Ugly Head

I'm not typically a jealous person. Not when it comes to my illustrations. Granted, I do have my moments, when I look at successful illustrators and think,"Why, oh why, can't that be me?"

But mostly, I see successful artists and am inspired by them.

In the case of me vs. Cholla, the painting horse, I'm just flat-out jealous. This horse has a watercolor exhibit in Venice this September... and sells his art for 2 grand a pop.



Why, OH WHY, can't that be me?

xoxo,

Hey! That horse's paintings look suspiciously like MY watercolors! Perhaps a lawsuit in the offing...

I am constantly seeing works by other artists that I absolutely love and wish I could do.

Now see, if you'd just start painting with the brush between your teeth then you too could be selling your paintings for 2 grand a pop too!

Horses that paint, cats that paint -- and I can't paint a lick. What's the world coming to?

(Somewhere I swear there's a Seinfeld episode in all this...)

Well you could bend over against a canvas with a paint brush up your bum, but I'd imagine that it wouldn't be quite as pleasant as sitting down at the table with some paint :)

Love your new blog banner btw!!! Totally adorable!
