Sometimes I Paint- The Grass Is Always Greener

paintingI try not to get too personal about my work, but I have an ever evolving job. My official title is Executive Assistant to the CEO. However, sometimes things get a little out of hand.

One day I was in his office, and he was describing to me a painting that he really wanted. He had never seen such a painting, but he made some scribbles on a scrap of paper. He had the idea that I could find someone to paint this for him, preferably for under $100.

I required a lot of explanation of what his drawing was, but then agreed that it may be possible to make this happen. He gets a lot of ideas, many of which do not come to fruition (due to many factors, one of which is my accomplishing actual work πŸ™‚ ). I think he thought I forgot about it, or maybe he just forgot about it.

Secretly, I had decided that I would take it upon myself to paint it. I like to paint, though I rarely do it. I thought it would be a fun challenge, and it was a few months before Christmas. It’s not like there are very many things you can give to your boss! I figured if it came out too embarrassing, I would just scrap the project and no one except J would have to know.

Except… I was pretty proud of myself! How cute are my cows? I managed to get exactly what he wanted, and he was super shocked. I kind of want to start another project in the next few months, does anyone have any ideas?

  5. Aw, the faces of your cows are to die for. They are so cute.

    Next ideas!
    Mermaids or quite possibly a web logo for my website?! I’ve been trying to find one for so long. 😦 But I don’t know how to do it myself.

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ I want to snuggle them!

      I don’t know about mermaids. They seem hard but so did cows so maybe I could!

      I don’t know how to do a logo either, but fiverr.com has tons of people that will do that for you, starting at $5. I totally plan to have someone from there so one for me, once I have more of a vision.

  7. Cute- you are a woman of many talents! You should check in with 60while60. One of her goals is to paint six paintings this year. She just did her first one and it’s a masterpiece http://60while60.wordpress.com/2015/02/17/1-of-6-paintings-2/

  9. Great stuff!!

    I am Hindu and cows are our sacred animal, so I’m a big fan already πŸ™‚

    As they say “creativity is divinity”. I actually believe that any form of creative expression brings us closer to knowing the self. And that in itself is divine.

    Keep going!!

    • That’s wonderful, I’m glad you like it πŸ™‚

      Also, that belief makes a lot of sense. Whenever I’m doing something creative, I always feel something that I can’t really explain, something that does make me know myself better.
