DescriptionHello everyone....can I get you a drink? It's on me ;)I'm pleased to share with you my latest painting titled First Aid.While some titles for paintings don't come to me pretty easily, this one came into my head before I was done with painting the outline for the composition I scrapped.Most of the time, getting a drink feels like putting on a band-aid on to help cover up whatever is going on. Whether you:- Had a long day and feel like you want to unwind,- Are dealing/coping with something personally,- Wanting to avoid something (emotionally or physically),- May feel out of place without a drink in your hand,- Want the courage to do something you wouldn't typically do while sober- Feel free to add to this list based on your own experienceRead more on my blog:http://hunterart.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-painting-first-aid.html
