Abject Failure

Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas


The OFM is still recovering from a blast of three migraines in the last couple of days but he was feeling like doing something so he picked the wrong thing to do. He started in on a new painting using a medium he has not used before. We have titled it Abject Failure and are requiring him to keep it around to remind him of his actual abilities with art things.

 

The good part is that supper was a very good chicken fried steak at his favorite mexican restaurant. That certainly picked up his spirits after that painting fiasco. He is still claiming it was a great effort at having tooooo much fun.

  1. I don't know, from where I sit it looks pretty good. Maybe not what you envisioned, so what would you have done differently?

    1. Have some idea of what I am doing. I think oil pastels will be lots of fun (and messy) HE HE HE.

  2. Hey Barney -- I could title my new "learning to play the ukulele after age 60" pastime an abject failure, too. But dayum it's fun. I'll settle for fun. :)

    1. You are right, Abject failure as a good painting but total success as lots of fun. Thanks for getting my head back on track.

  5. Yes, having fun at failing is still having fun. Although I would not have described your painting as a failure.

  6. Hello from Carlos, my wife and I ran into you while we were fishing Wednesday by the Paws and Taws we were unaware at the time that we were talking to the Old Fat Man, my brother in law told us about your blog and he reads your blog daily, hopefully we will run into you again, if not I too will read about your adventures.

    1. Hello Carlos. I met a few folks that day so my exact memory is vague but do not let that stop you from giving out a big TEXAS sized HOWDY the next time. Glad you commented and I look forward to meeting you again.
