Do you ever notice coincidence? I love it when it happens to me.
My lawyer said a funny thing to me one day after a meeting we had to go over my divorce and subsequent court orders, “Be vanilla.”
Apparently, my spirited nature was showing and I needed to tone it down a notch. I admit to being a woman of many emotions. One might consider that “colorful.”
After Darren and I went into business together, we were discussing art. He had an image in his mind of something he used to draw as a kid. I tried to encourage him to paint it, seeing as how I think art expression to be a wonderful thing.
He did paint it one day. Strangest thing is when he brought it to my store/art studio The Grove Oak Store, when we noticed an amazing coincidence. We turned a painting I had done a couple of winters ago on its side. I was having dreams about colors at the time, kinda yearning for some color when I looked out the window at Lighter’s house and yard and painted this abstract.
Look at them both.
So, we decided that it was really cool and looked liked I painted the first person view of this Vivid character and Darren painted a third person view. It’s a woman diving in the water, hot like a meteor. She’s Vivid.
What do you think? Did we paint the same character? And, could that be me?
Cool coincidence, huh?
