spqrblues: (Ave Sweetums)
At some point, I seem to have decided that learning about and using authentically ancient paint pigments and other art materials is more interesting than, say, not poisoning myself so as to have a long, non-Van Gogh-style life. I reason: I won't ever have any children to raise and I don't have to worry about them licking my paint; I won't be able to afford retirement in any case; I'm generally grumpy and irritating and annoyed about life anyway. On the other hand, not poisoning myself would give me a little longer to create more, less toxic art. It's a conundrum.

OK, not really.

I'll be bunny-sitting next month, and nothing is going to be around the bunnies that I wouldn't lick or breathe myself, so that will make me behave for a couple of weeks. Mad Scientist Food Experiments will resume for a while. Before bunny-time starts, I want to get in a few more paint experiments.
