You know you're an artist when

I was doing some searching on the internet and found this site on Art Jokes. Here is a sampling that I really enjoyed.

You know you’re an artist when…
The highlights in your hair are from your palette and not Clairol.
When viewing a sunset, you think in terms of cadmium yellow (light hue), salmon and gold, a tinted teal mixed with gold for the water...."
There are Prussian blue fingerprints on your phone.
You stay awake late at night wondering how to render on canvas the dimly lit shapes and the shadows in your room.
You explain your deplorably bad housekeeping by saying, "it's a work-in-progress..."
Dust bunnies are part of your mixed media.
You buy expensive brushes that have nothing to do with your hair.
You get a feeling of calmness from holding and stroking the bristles of your clean paintbrushes.
You know the difference between beige, ecru, cream, off-white, and eggshell.
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.

Oh it's so true - "You get a feeling of calmness from holding and stroking the bristles of your clean paintbrushes."

I love dust bunnies as a mixed media! How about just plain home decor? Something to keep the cats occupied with?
