Redoing My Paintings

I said I would create a painting for an auction. She wanted me to include the school mascot. I thought I did, but I didn’t. I accidentally included the biggest rival’s school’s mascot. Iowa, and Iowa State. Who knew? I thought I did, but apparently I did not and I am from Iowa. My twin who knows a bit about sports thought it was hilarious. I had already finished all three paintings, I was not as amused. I had to turn the Iowa Hawk into a cardinal. I did it too; it is not perfect but it is what they are getting. I had spent a week on these, a do-over is not something I can face. Not this week at least. Not after putting on all the finishing touches.

Hey, you should have told them they'd just have to change their mascot. That would do the trick!

I should have! I am meeting her for lunch today and I have another surprise. I made one more painting yesterday, so now she has four.
