Teenagers

Moody, energetic, imaginative, angry, absent-minded, passionate, willful, engaging, restless, idealistic, impulsive, altruistic...

...and creative.

On. The. Walls. Of. Their. Room.

These bold colours are not quite in disguise.

When you're not looking.

It took three coats of primer to cover up this streak of creativity sparked by my daughter's inner poet a year or two ago.

Thank goodness for primer.

  3. Glad you allowed her to express her artistic side. Fortunately she didn't go wild and paint all the walls in deep, rich colors.
    I have a friend whose son painted his room in contrasting colors of scarlet red and jet black. She's afraid she'll have to sandblast the walls before she can paint over it.

  6. It sure does sound like something a teenager would do :) At least it's just one part of the room to put primer on 3 times ;)

  10. Hi Martha! I've been reading back through some of your posts! Doesn't it almost seem like it was just a few years since "We" were that age!? I love that quote, it's good that you now have it recorded for all time!

    1. It does seem like it was just a few years ago. It's startling how quickly time goes by.

    1. I know..very shocking. But the next owners of the house won't be as happy about it as I am! They might even be annoyed :)

    1. She is very artistic and this is exactly the type of thing I'd expect from her. I took a photo to preserve this memory. Kind of sad having to cover it up!

  13. I would have been tempted to leave it. When she is a famous artist, you might regret painting over it! :-)
