I just came home with a painting. Boy I was lucky that it survived the curiosity of a senior citizens attack.
While I was painting the historic cabin, which the local museum had build up in the woods, an elderly man came over to me shouting for his wife to come over and to have a look at the artist and his painting.
She only gave a muffled sound of discontent and then she marched in the opposite direction. Meanwhile he got real existed about the painting. Told me that he approves of my work and that I am a real artist because he really could see what I am painting.
He found it so funny that I painted all the rubbish on the left side of the cabin. He was hammering with his big finger on the wet canvas telling me that it was him putting all the old tools near the cabin....here....pointing on the canvas.....on the left side of the cabin. And the stuff......here....pointing.....are old fishing tools....here....pointing on the canvas again.
I got real busy lifting the painting a bit but he followed me talking all the time and popping his fingers on the canvas. I thought I would faint but luckily nothing happens to the fresh paint. It must be a miracle that nothing happened to the painting as the old man was not shy at all telling his stories with a lot of gusto and animation.
