Painting in a waiting room

by Winston Seeney
(Mount Standfast, Barbados.)

I once took my car in for repair to a local GM dealer and was told that I would have a 2 hour wait. No problem, I just happened to have my painting gear with me. I settle down it the waiting room at a small table I had sequestered.

I painted for 2 hours and as I neared the end of my work, a curious man rose from his seat and walked over to the table to look at my work.

It wasn't much to write home about, for I had only painted for a few months.
It was a barnyard scene.

The man stood there, and looked and the words he spoke catapaulted me back in time through the years to when I was a boy in grade seven, living near a military base.

"Gee that is so good."

"Thank you".

"Can I make one suggestion?"

"Sure, feel free."

And with that, he took his thick stubby finger and pushed it into the sky above the barn.

"I would paint a plane..........right there."

Did I?

This is so funny Mary Ann. I didn't paint a plane in the sky, but it wouldn't have mattered much, for I could have painted a communications tower, or a crow or a flying basketball. I didn't have a clue how to paint in waters then...and when I look back at that painting..I can see it.
