Put your comedic hat on and give us an anectdote, true or made up.

Here's a few to start-

"You know you're an artist when......"

.....someone compliments you on your lipstick - but you dont use it - and then you realize it's from holding paint brushes in your mouth.

.....you start painting at 7 pm, then after what seems like an hour - you go to bed at 3 am.

.....your kitchen table looks like the table at the craft shop.

.....the words you hear most are "how long did it take you to paint that"?

...When you start talking about the colors you see in the sunset "burnt carmine, ochre, poppy red" and people don't know what you're talking about...

...When you find yourself craving colored pencils more than that second piece of chocolate...

... when the art store's sale is more important than groceries. (Starving artists understand this.)
