My Writing Space #3

Very soon, Stephen King will be posting photos of his home office on his interactive web site. But for now, I invite you to take a gander at my space and see how our offices compare.

Mr. King will be showing photographs of his many paintings and writing awards. I, on the other hand, still have a blank canvas, as you can see. This canvas has been sitting in my office on the easel for sixteen months. I intend to paint it some day and hang it over our mantel in the great room.

My hope has always been that I could paint my wife in the nude, but she tells me I will have to settle for painting slugs and other invertebrates. I paint wonderfully with my hands (as I learned in Kindergarten) and this method has served me well.
Mr. King has million dollar paintings in his office (Picasos, Rembrandts and such). I, on the other hand, have a canvas from Hobby Lobby.

Mr. King has posters of his many movies, cameo appearances, and screenplay awards. My wife once gave me a birthday card that said I was the greatest, but that was twelve years ago, and there has been a lot of water flow under the bridge since then. I recycled the card and used it to take out the coffee grounds.
Mr. King has a wall of fame. I have a twenty dollar easel.

You are afraid that you will mess the canvas up by painting on it. I recommend throwing some coffee on it to get you started. Maybe your dog could do that for you.
