A few weeks ago I was out wandering around the city and came across an art supply store. I ended up going in, and buying anything that drew my attention, even though I’ve only been to one painting class and have basically no artistic ability whatsoever.
I’ve been bringing them out and experimenting a bit lately and it’s pretty fun. Maybe I’ll never show them to anyone, and they are probably terrible, but maybe they will sit in my closet for years collecting dust and one day after I die someone will find them and the world will mourn that such an amazing talent wasn’t recognized until it was too late.
No need to look so skeptical, that sort of thing happens all the time.
