Wacky Wednesday #73—Paint Deck



You are what you wear, as the famous saying goes.

What’s that? This isn’t how the famous saying goes?
Oh.

In any case, I am a painter and I am wearing paint swatches today.
 
This idea came to me months ago when my artist friends Jeanne and John gave me some art supplies they no longer needed, including two paint decks. (Thanks, J + J!) I immediately saw the potential to turn a deck into a dress. I’m using my favorite colors from the deck, which are the brightest, most colorful ones, rather than all the serious greys and beiges. Bright colors make me happy. If you feel happy in your clothes, your day is more likely to go well. (Wearing paper is not the most comfortable thing ever, but color wins this week!)
 




By the way, does this outfit make you want to race to your nearest paint store and buy quart after quart of happy colors and paint accent walls different colors all over your house, until it looks as colorful as a candy store? ME TOO!
Happy painting…
