How do you get spray paint off your elbow?

Or more importantly how do you get spray paint on your elbow, you might ask. Well, I HAD to keep spraying tonight, even in the wind and then what I sprayed started to blow away (yes we only had one clear, calm day in a row) and so I put my elbow down to keep it from moving to Arizona and well, you know...
This is just too much fun. So my plan for tomorrow, if it is still blowing, is NOT to spray but to do backgrounds to spray on...we'll see how long that lasts. That and to wear long sleeves tomorrow. And did you know that Ace Hardware (and maybe lots of other places but that is what is down the street from my house...) has these great big sheets of color samples? Like the blue one with the bird on it. And boy oh boy do they take spray paint.
And this is just a cool picture of the Easter lily my son brought me last Sunday. A faded bloom, a current bloom and a brand new bloom to keep me company when I am not spraying... when is that again?

Love the telephone poles. To remove the paint, first try lotion, something with oil in it. If that doesn't work, grind it off with an exfoliant, a cheap pumice stone, pumice cream/powder (like mechanics use), an emery board ... whatever you have around: sandpaper, sand (plenty of that, right?), salt, sugar, crushed almonds, or even oatmeal - for that sensitive skin of yours. Chemical solvents are available, but who wants to use chemicals? Or just leave it, braggy taggy.

Baby oil is what I use as a 'solvent'. Works well even with oil based paints. But, the Orange hand cleaner stuff works great too. Just eats up my skin...

I'm laughing because this sounds like me. It's almost always windy here and I try everything to be able to spray paint outside. Haven't painted my elbow....yet!

I love what you've done! The ones in the previous post are just fantastic and I like the man's face you used here.

Big sheets of paint samples????? I've never heard of such a thing. Do they sell them? How big are they? Tell me more.

How about Saturday, May 2nd for the glass graveyard?
