smearing paint under one's eyelids.

by Eli Skipp

"but then they caught her dipping fingers in the paint jar and smearing
colors under her eyelids -- which can't be hygienic -- and they said
it's 'cause she always had a hard time fitting in."

I do love this. It's obvious, yet completely surprising at the same time, which is a great skill to have, and the way everything is pieced together is so refreshing. the artwork's cool too

Love the @ under the eyes symbolism. Very original and inkspires us to work harder not to fit in. I've always been at outs with the in crowds. What tremendous rew@rds!

I'm headed for the paint jar right this minute... if you don't see me for awhile, the blues are winning my smearing experiment.
Another sigh of admiration. tre bien!
