Maggie the Kid aka Ninja Maggie

As most of you know, I like to paint.  Not really rooms, though I find myself doing so ridiculously often.  I like to paint pictures of whatnot.  I always say that I don't think people get it, that they think I am just bad and not intentionally making my paintings look the way the do.  This story, while amusing, is not going to change those opinions.

Like I said, I like silly, wonky, odd art which is why I painted these.

In the midst of painting for Ethel Edith Maggie asked me to paint her.  This is what Maggie looked like that night. 

Things started off well.  I've only done realist art with a sketch pad and pencil before, so this was a new one for me...but I decided to try a realistic painting.  All was going well, the hair, the flower, the eyes and brows, then the nose even turned our right.  I finished up her lips then added freckles and this is when things went wrong.  They were too dark. I tried to lighten them and it got worse.  I tried to add a little water and thin them out.  Fail.  So, this is what I ended up doing.  Then I laughed hard. 
This is Maggie in full ninja/wild west gang memeber disguise.  Ladies and Gents, I'd like to introduce you to Maggie the Kid, an infamous Texas gun slinger. 
Hahahahaha!  Like I said, I'm changing no opinions
