And as an added bonus...

...Shelby R. Bach's first oil painting:

Untitled (2004)

Acrylic is really more my medium.

I painted this at the end of my senior year of high school. Since I actually finished it a few days of everyone else, I spent several classes adding more paint and making it even uglier. It took MONTHS to dry properly.

I would've thrown it away, but my mom likes it.

It is definitely a painting only a mother could love. I am stunned by its ugliness every time I see it. (What's with all the green innards?)

The label to this entry is quite a mouthful! Does your mom have this painting on display in your house somewhere? I'd bet it be a good conversation starter.

Have fun at the beach!!

Yay! It's awesome!

Where can I sign up for a Shelby B original???

Baking Up Life - Haha! I didn't even realize that it was alliterative until you pointed it out. No, Mom hung that painting up in my room - just so I got to see it the most. :-P

Joanna - Giggle. Well, if I ever start painting again, I'll make sure that I give you one. :-D
