Remember them? You can still get these kits. They tell you up front what the finished picture will look like. Just select a paint number, apply it to a brush and stay between the lines.

Somehow this seems familiar. Kind of like court. You are given the rules of the court, you apply it to what you consider facts and the outcome is predetermined. The kit costs money and someone is going to pay for it.


Grab a canvas, a selection of paints and brushes. Close your eyes and start imagining. What you paint might end up as impressionist, primitive or cartoon art. Consider the judge as an art critic.

PAINT YOUR CASE. Or paint by numbers. Think outside of lines. Or let the lines do your thinking.
