Killing Time.....




What do you do with your idle time? 




You can even track your money!





Now you can impress your friends by folding a used metro ticket into a fighter plane.







Artist Diem Chau carved the twelve zodiac signs on skinny little crayolas...




are you into paper crafts?


Reminiscent of origami papers, these crafts are made with security envelopes!

I paint...


I paint when I have idle time....



I paint for a living...

I paint to paint!

What do you do when you are killing time??

Theresa, love your post. Starts out quite simple and then one realizes that a true artist has stepped into the scene. You are an amazing painter, truly remarkable.

Yes, I also paint to paint. Mostly ceramics, so satisfying and much more rewarding than doing the same chores over and over again.

Karena and Gina- coming from two accomplished artists, thank you! Keep up the painting,,,it is all that we know how to do!

Love your art and your compulsion to paint. I say I wasn't evolved enough to be born because I can't paint and I can't sing. So I garden, I build stone walls, I cook, I make my home my home, and I read. Still wish I could paint...

That was fun! Yesterday I tracked my money...right over to the government!

Your posts are always so entertaining that I like to read them twice. They invite lingering, I guess you could say. Or loitering. Ha!

I will catch up with all the fun when I get back from the beach.

Wishing you a great two weeks. Happy painting, Theresa.

Cashon&Co said...

lol about the word "tacki" about Gene Simmons!!!!

Theresa Cheek said...

Yeah, I think Gene SImmons and "tacki" are synonymous!

I adore that bedroom!

Theresa Cheek said...

lulu-the running joke has been that she should acquire an Italian lover to go with the new decor!

Blog? Or weed. Or see how much housework I can do in 15 minutes! I do love to doodle and use a stack of white copier paper as my mouse pad so I can doodle away while at my desk. Love your way of killing time! Leaving a lovely thumbprint behind you. I tagged you on my last post, Theresa...if you feel like playing! Trish

I love your painting...always so elegant with a sly sense of humor. :) When not in Art, I idle my time away with writing, dancing and reading. Not all at the same time. ;)
