Okay, years ago when I was a somewhat different and much more crafty and artistic person than I am today, I used to paint. When I say paint, I mean painting on a grand scale. Anything and everything was fair game. I painted an entire kitchen with small 4x4 blocks of color and then put an individual design in the middle of each one. I did rag rolling, sponge painting, I painted t-shirts and canvases. In short, I spent a lot of time being creative. Over the past 10 years or so, I just haven't had the creative spark that I used to. Here's where it get weird:

Last week I was watching one of those stupid Suddenlink commercials and the announcer said "Hard is painting a fan" with the image being a guy holding a can of spraypaint and letting it loose in front of a blowing fan, which of course resulted in paint all over him. Crazy, but it got me thinking: what if you took a smaller fan, maybe a hand-held one, and sprayed the paint from behind the fan? What kind of patterns could you come up with? Would it be a total mess, or would it create something of a roughly airbrushed effect? Would it be possible to control the paint by controlling how fast the fan blows or what type of fan you use? DH is going out of town this weekend and I'm thinking a trip to Home Depot and Michaels is in order!
