Paint till you faint

I have been painting and painting and painting but sometimes its just the same or similar design and colours again and again that I feel faint. Have you ever experienced the times that your painting pace gets so slow as its the same work (same kind of painting) everyday? It just comes once in a while. And I have been feeling it since past few weeks. Today is somewhat refreshing, painting blue and white on various blue backgrounds. No wonder I'm working faster today and produce better output. Well, when it comes to painting you just have to get yourself into gear whenever work gets monotonous and leads to boredom and laziness. Switch by doing other things for a while like watch TV, go shopping, hang out with friends or better, take a holiday! Then you will come back to paint better. That, definitely works for me!

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Even the simplest mirror frames can be made more attractive by painting beautiful designs on them.

And if you do not have a frame, make one by painting on the
wall all around the mirror!
