i.e. The Paint left over on 
Working Artist's Hands!


Art is often a messy business! Anyone who has ever worked at painting with brushes, pastels, or drawing with charcoal knows that much of the medium ends up on their hands. There is true beauty in these unintended artworks, and they represents the effort the artist has applied to their craft.
