I remember getting into trouble for drawing in ink on my bed sheets as a child. I don't do that anymore (but I could if I wanted to!). As an adult, I have continued to paint on just about anything that will stay still long enough – mostly walls and furniture. Here, too, that strong desire to UPCYCLE comes into play – converting old shutters into closet doors, giving a new look to something old, giving an old look to something new, painting a memory into a piece of cherished furniture...All I need is an idea, some paint, and for the chosen surface to simply stay still.
