We all need someone beside us, who is able to make us sharp.

Pencils  too.

“Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing”

 

My inspiration for today is the song “Hear nothing see nothing say nothing”,

made by the band “Discharge“. Even thou the song is written more than 30

years ago, it’s political, poetic and minimalistic lyrics are still relevant today,

at least in the part of the world where I live:

 

“Lied to, threatened, cheated and deceived

Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing

Led up garden paths and into blind alleys

Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing”

Be kind

 

Tasks for day 52:

1. Be kind.

2. Try to make small realistic painting of electric switch that looks like a face

with minimum brushstrokes as possible and explain it on your blog in one long sentence.

3. BE KIND!

Phone

 

When I start this project 5o days ago, I knew that it would be challenging

to find inspiration each day for painting and writing. Also, to find time for all of that.

But, today is day 50 of my project, I’ve already accomplished 50% and I am glad for that.

Thank you all for supporting me in this.

P.S. This painting has nothing to do with my post.

I just had to make something fast, because I am late for birthday party :)

“Cassette”

 

Back then, this was the recipe:

1. Find cassette with the music you like

2. Put it in deck 1

3. Put empty cassette in deck 2

4. Press play on deck 1

5. Press play/record on deck 2

6. Wait, wait, wait…

7. Congratulation

 

And yes, that’s how old I am.

Piece of cake

 

Today is day 48 of my project “100 days of mini art”.

To be honest, sometimes it is very hard to choose what to paint,

but sometimes is just piece of cake.
