It Must Have Been the Avocado!

This happened when I painted with no real plan while listening to “Night On Bald Mountain” by Mussorgsky and “Cello Concerto No. 1” by Shostakovich - I had my work apron on and still managed to get paint all over myself.  I finally had to stop.  

I ate an avocado for lunch…maybe it was messing with the right side of my brain!  If you look closely, you can see that I actually painted over an existing work of mine.
