Wands and Wandering
I could use a magic wand this week. And a hoard of minions. I wonder if Joey also makes minion hoards?
If I've learned nothing else from painting, it is that the paint is always, ALWAYS boss. So I followed the paint (or pigment, in this case). And like the Family Circus comic, when you follow one thing, you start wandering and it leads to another, sometimes unrelated thing, like this bit from The Wizard of Oz, which prompted the name for the painting. Hmmm - is there something psychedelic in these pigments? :)

Paint is indeed the boss. You can plan and you can try to contain it, but it wins every time. The minute it senses you thinking about something else in your day and not giving it your fullest attention Blam! It does what it wants. Learning how to go along for the ride and coming to an agreement with the paint albeit sometimes an uneasy peace with occasional border skirmishes.

Carl! OMG! You are so right. It reads minds and intentions. Border skirmishes! I am still chuckling at your perfect phrasing. :)

1. Hats off to Joey! You make a good point. About me and my business mindlessness.

Love that background! Wow, a bird showing up over night! Exactly what our mentor was talking about this morning in work shop... paint is the boss!

Right? Your mentor is so right! When we walk away and let go, our eyes are suddenly opened to what is right there. :)

It’s amazing because as early as his age, he have learned to love both science and art behind business. This young Cleveland entrepreneur is not just creative, he also knows how to deal and play the game with life already. Making creative wands for different purposes was such a clever idea. At the same time, he gets to express his creativity in a way he wants. How I wish all children will have the said attitude. If we will let them mature as early as possible, these kids will be responsible individuals someday!
