Tuesday Art Day continues to go well.

Machines are a lot easier to paint than people. Probably because we spend more time looking at people, so we know little details like which direction the nose should be pointing, so small mistakes like pointing the nose in the wrong direction look really wonky. But with a piece of machinery it doesn’t matter so much; you can do things like failing to match up the bottom half of the sphere in the center with the top half, and it’s not as noticeable. Until somebody points it out. At which point it becomes the only thing you can see.
