What is it about the word "pretty" that feels so creepy? It's kind of like "nice," another word that sounds like a catchall, just something to say because you don't know what else to say, or you don't have the vocabulary to be more specific...or because you really don't like something at all but feel you would be offensive if you said anything besides "pretty" or "nice." So I've actually come to think of both these words themselves as offensive...in a pretty nice way, of course.
But here's the other thing ~ I enjoyed painting this pretty little piece. As I'm enjoying all the painting I'm doing. Although it always seems to be difficult for me to actually begin painting, I enjoy it probably more than anything else I've done over the years. Which is very interesting to me when I fully consider what I just wrote: It is difficult for me to do things that I enjoy. Hmmm...
