You lookin at me?

My post title can be used for two things
the first is the actual title
that I've given my bird painting
that I've finished at long last.
 Well, look at that face, doesn't
it just say "You lookin' at me?".
The second title is a little more scary
as I think that it'll be me saying that 
after thursday next week.
Well, I've finally done something that's 
either very dumb or rather clever,
that is to be determined
(keeping in mind that I'm blonde).
I've ordered a pair of graduated glasses
cos I'm fed up with wearing two pairs
and yes that is at once.
If I need to see something more than three feet away
 I need my long distance glasses
but to see anything close up I need my reading glasses
and many a time I have both pairs balanced precariously
upon my nose.
So it's graduated glasses for me.
Now I'm going to call them layered glasses
because I only went to grade 12 
(high school to non Aussie countries)
and I'm blowed if I'll put some stuck up glasses
onto my nose that think they are better than me
and "graduated" college.
So layered it is, just like my paintings
layer upon layer of goop

and ink

and paint
you get the picture.
When I went to order my glasses they kept on
saying, you'll adjust to them easily,
just follow your nose.
Now that is a scary thing in itself,
imagine following your nose everywhere.
If my nose is a bit bent at the end
I could find myself spinning around in endless circles
just like a dog with it's tail.
Or I could be permanently cross eyed
trying to focus on my nose and nothing else.
Argh, the mind boggles.
What have I done??

At least I was a little clever,
I've finished all of my paintings for
an upcoming show.
They just need sealing now
I should have at least three coats on the boat
before the dreaded layered eyes arrive
and I've drawn up and started another canvas.
Now I just have to hope that my nose
leads me into the studio
and not into the wall.
Mind you, that could knock some sense into me.

Linking up to PPF.
