I’ve Got A Brand New Pair of Roller Skates

“This I conceive to be the chemical function of humor: to change the character of our thought.”
– Lin Yutang

Very Interesting!

I’ve Got A Brand New Pair of Roller Skates – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor

… and you’ve got a brand new key.  I know…. now that song is stuck in your head, too!  I painted this on Memorial Day and that song stayed in my head for HOURS!!  :D

It was painted from a WetCanvas reference by BettyBoop22.
