There goes that security deposit AGAIN

  1. Sep 10, 2008 #1
    Okay, I used to paint a lot, but I haven't done any painting lately. I decided to sell my paint supplies and brushes and easel. I was gathering everything together and decided I'll just paint one last one before I give it up. The only problem was I didn't have any canvas. So I'm looking around and I notice that my front door has magic marker on it from the previous tenants. I figure they are going to have to repaint the door when I move out anyway. I also should mention that I was thinking about Bora Bora. Now when my front door is closed, it looks like it is open but instead of the brick wall I usually see, it opens to a boardwalk and the ocean. Covers the ENTIRE door. Probably should have thought this one through a bit more.

    Just sell the door and buy a house with the proceeds :smile:

    I'm trying to find a camera I'm waiting for my neighbor to get home so I can borrow his.

    Just leave the door open while the landlord does the final inspection. As long as the door is still on the hinges, they never think to look behind one. :uhh: It IS still on the hinges, right?

    Um...I just remembered, you're the one who had that cute children's story and was pleading for an illustrator because you couldn't draw. So, just how bad is this painting going to be? :uhh:

    It's horrible. Perspective is pretty much correct though.

    Okay, I'm still waiting for the neighbor, but I got out my old p.o.s. camera. The picture is horrible, but you get the basic idea.

    Wow, that's so cool. But it's not enough. You have to continue the mural onto the bricks...

    It's awesome, tribdog.
    Mind, it would look even cooler if you took off the doorknob...
    Well, maybe you could just paint it so it looks like it belongs? What sticks out of the sand like that?

    It's oil paint too, so they won't be able to just paint over it.

    DON'T encourage him! This is someone with a penchant for destroying property the way Evo destroys herself!

    Though, that mural on the door is pretty cool! Much better than I was expecting, actually. The doorknob spoils it though.

    Who paints a door knob and key hole into a picture of the ocean? This junk stinks.

    You could make the doorknob into a...shell? Oh - a conch. Or a crab. A snorkel! Or a dead sea gull...hmmm, you could do a lot with it....

    remember this is oil paint so it can take days to dry. I'm stuck in here if I paint the doorknob.
