i shan’t name this.

When will I ever learn not to put photos of my paintings on my blog? They always end up being blurred and shitty-looking.

Anyways, I ended up doing this lil’ painting yesterday, and I must say that I have seen way too many people doing the same one. But whatever, because I was gonna do a different thing which ended up failing so badly that I covered it up and decided that my mediocre talents were best when put under the common grind.

It was fun. Making the gradient was a bit frustrating at first, but I got it eventually (though it is not as smooth as I would have liked it to be) and the colors are calming. Hecc, I can even imagine a small birb sitting on one of the malnourished branches.

When I was younger, I used to be fascinated by ants, scurrying around like mobile sesame seeds. I even adopted one and subsequently lost it, after having named it Billy Bob Joe. I then started a tradition of finding ants and naming them Billy Bob Joe (the consecutive number). As a matter of fact, I am on the 40th Billy Bob Joe. How royal. I suppose Billy Bob Joe the 40th could also be at home on one of the branches.

Perhaps he’d be lost by the time he finds it.

  1. Nice painting. Naming “Billy Bob Joe” is a great job.👏👏

    I have a habit of saving ants. I help them come out of the water. If there are too many ants on my way, I walk by beside.
