On this… the trio agrees… Calliope tosses today’s image into the trash. “Praaaa-k-tis! It was praaaa-k-tis.” “Grmph!” Nia grunts. “It wasn’t so bad… until…” Calliope considers, “… until we splattered… while the top tulip was still wet. Then… when we tried to fix it… it turned brown.”

“Mistakes can be unrecognizable gateways to entirely new concepts and ideas.”
Example: 3M’s “failed” glue experiment... Led to the Post-It note...
Note the timeline from “accidental discovery” to application and an ultimate place in the Inventor’s Hall of Fame... “12 Years an Idea.”
Ha-ha! You need more “color-challenged” readers. Perhaps if a chicken egg hadn’t appeared the brown would have been detectable? One paintist’s trash is another’s treasure?😊
For all I knew this was the team’s first foray into pointillism painting? This viewer can’t imagine the methodical patience employed by the great artists like Georges Seurat. Just a few more dots and you would have been done. 😂
I thank the brush and paper crew for modeling honesty, which polishes humility and courage. My instinct would have been to imitate Jackson Pollock with some wholesale paint flinging. 😔 It made him famous! That technique was named “action painting.” I feel certain Tal could pull that off with a flourish. 😬
Muses, I think that it's pretty. It just shouts springtime and Easter.
Well, *I* think the illustration is (was?) fine! Why can't Easter eggs be brown? Is that a rule? Or more of a guideline?
