Toni’s Extrovert Diaries-Day 8- T.E.D. Talk Tuesday and Tips- No Brush Painting

1 Apr

“Who says you have to have fancy paints and brushes to paint and be creative? Brushes? We don’t need no stinkin’ brushes.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

I’ve been watching SO much TV and spending SO much time on my iPad that I think I’m going a little mad. And, to tell you the truth… “THE TRUTH…YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!” Guess what I was watching today? And it was just to hear those famous lines. At least it wasn’t “The Shining,” and I’m not walking around with an axe saying, “Where’s Johnny?”

Today, I took several walks with my trusty furry companion, then decided to do something creative. So, I made another quick how-to video on painting bluebonnets. My friend Sherri was painting some flowers and posted her progress on Facebook. I asked why she didn’t double load her brush and she said she didn’t have the right brushes. My thought was, “Brushes? We don’t need no stinkin’ brushes.” (More movie inspired quotes.)

I suggested she try some Q-tips gathered up with a rubber band. She loved the idea. I decided to put together a quick how-to video. It’s a very quick and impromptu project, and was not that easy to film while holding my phone in one hand and painting with the other. But, it gives you some ideas to play with.

Happy Tuesday. Hang in there. One week down… a zillion more to go. ❤️
