You know you're artist when...................

"You know you're an artist when......"



 .....You start painting at
, then after what seems like an hour - you go to bed at .

.....your kitchen table looks like the table at the craft shop.

.....the words you hear most are "how long did it take you to paint that"?


-You were more concerned about the color of your car than the fuel consumption.

-The highlights in your hair are from your palette and not Clairol.
     You never look at a person's face as a whole. You break it up into shadows and lines and shapes, and think how they would look on a canvas.
  You butter your toast with your fingers, just to feel its texture.
  You are over 50 and still have no health insurance
You know what shade of green the lichen on the trees is.
 You can't find a nice outfit for your date because everything has paint smears on
 
. You're late for the date because you suddenly knew exactly what that detail of your latest painting needed and just had to fix it while it was fresh in your mind.
    You bought paint instead of food!
   . You draw your letters instead of write them.
  There are Prussian blue fingerprints on your phone
