    You were more concerned about the color of your car than the fuel consumption.

    The highlights in your hair are from your palette and not Clairol.

    You are having lunch with the girls and the fragrance you wear is eau d'linseed oil.

    The only piece of new furniture you have in your home is a $2000 easel.

    You butter your toast with your fingers, just to feel its texture.

    You are over 50 and still have no health insurance.

    Your family takes out a life insurance plan on you for less than $5000.

    You know what shade of green the lichen on the trees is.

    You can't find a nice outfit for your date because everything has paint smears on.

    Your date ends up with paint smears on her/him.

    You're late for the date because you suddenly knew exactly what that detail of your latest painting needed and just had to fix it while it was fresh in your mind.

    You chose to buy that new Russian Sable Number Six Round
    instead of a Big Mac, a Large Fry, a Milkshake, Desert, and five gallons of gas.

    Your favorite home repair store refuses to work with you to repaint your den, because you rename all of their paint swatches and you get upset that they don't carry the exact nuance of raw umber you had in mind.

    There are Prussian blue fingerprints on your phone.

    You clean your brushes in your coffee.

    You carry pencils instead of pens.

    You explain your deplorably bad housekeeping by saying, "it's a work-in-progress..."

    You do judge a book by its cover.

    You watch the latest kids' digital animation movies and drool over the effects as much as the story.

    You bought paint instead of food!

    You paint more than you talk.

    You draw your letters instead of write them.

    You like to get plastered and paint the town red.

    You're in love ... with your studio.

    You know that art does not match your sofa.

    You buy expensive brushes, and have nothing to do your hair with.

    You get a feeling of calmness from holding and stroking the bristles of your clean paintbrushes.

    When going on a quick errand in your painting cloths you're finding people rave over the 'fashion statement' you didn't even realize you were making.

    You get excited about football season because it means your significant other will finally be sitting still on the sofa long enough for you to paint him.

    At the gym you take note of the instense facial expressions of the heavy lifters.

    --when others think you always have a new shirt on, but you know it's only because every day it's a new combination of colors....
