While watching a Jeff Foxworthy stand-up routine this weekend, I started to wonder if I could apply "You Might be a Redneck if..." to the life of an artist, and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!
You might be an artist if…
-You refer to your favorite color as French ultramarine blue or alizarin crimson.
-You spend more on art supplies than on groceries.
-A “green” thumb means you have been painting landscapes all day.
-You suddenly feel the urge to lay a graded wash.
-You only watch PBS to see Bob Ross reruns.
-You carry a French easel in the trunk of your car for those “plein air” emergencies.
-140 lbs. is your ideal “paper” weight.
-You know what the heck “trompe-l’oeil” is.
-You always refer to white as “titanium white”.
-You accidentally dip your paint brush in your tea cup or coffee cup.
-You save your old tooth brushes for those “Jackson Pollock” moments.
-You often use your thumbs and fore fingers to make an impromptu viewfinder.
-You see a color and automatically think of its compliment.
-Every Halloween you consider dressing as Van Gogh – sans one ear.
-You always take a smaller version of your supplies with you on vacation.
-Other people often refer to you as “eccentric”.
-The smell of a freshly opened box of crayons gets you overly excited.
-You shop at the thrift store only to find items for your next still life.
