Artjokes: Murphy’s Law & Art


Murphy’s Law, which states that if anything can go wrong, it will, applies to art and painting too.

  1. Never quickly add something to a painting when you’re already dressed to go out somewhere and are waiting for the rest of the family to get ready as you WILL get paint on your clothes.
  2. Don’t rinse your brushes in the same cup you drink from, one day you WILL end up knowing what paint tastes like! (EEW)
  3. Resist the temptation to make one little correction to a painting as that correction WILL need to be corrected, and then the correction of the correction and so on.
  4. When the painting is almost dry, don’t use your fingers to touch it because it WILL still be wet.
  5. When you are about to begin painting, the phone will ring.
