The View from my Phone: Week 15

Posted on April 15, 2012 and tagged Art & Photography

Happy Halfway-Through-April day! Is that not a real thing? I guess if you live in the US, it's not a very happy day for you since your tax returns are due. We get another 15 days. I'm proud to say I actually filed mine long ago! I worked in an Accountant's office for a few years doing tax returns and while I was there, I would always file mine on the very the last day. I guess now that I don't have to prepare hundreds of returns, doing just mine doesn't seem so hard.

This week, two of my photos are of my favorite pieces of art from my home. Top left is a reproduction of a classic The Music Man Broadway poster that I painted in high school. It sat rolled up in my closet for many, many years until my mom had it professionally framed as a gift. Now, it's really a reminder for me to not get intimidated by big projects. I feel like if someone asked me to recreate a Broadway poster now, I would panic a bit. But back when I was 16, I didn't even think twice, I just dove in. It's definitely not perfect, but I'm pretty impressed with my 16-year-old self for doing it with such confidence.
