What exactly does the Paintbrush of Destiny do? That’s a good question, one which I am still trying to find the answer to myself, actually. In the two weeks since I discovered the magical paintbrush, I haven’t been able to work it out. It’s a shame my grandfather didn’t write some instructions for the thing. As far as I can tell, all it does is help you paint things really well. Even that, I’m not entirely sure about.
I have been taking the paintbrush to work over the last several days, and my boss has complimented the painting I’ve been doing more than ever, but perhaps I’m just high on confidence at the moment. This paintbrush isn’t necessarily making me the best interior painter in the Melbourne CBD, although I accept that it’s a possibility. After all, my grandfather was a master at his craft, even if it was painting portraits and landscapes, rather than painting buildings. I feel like it’s pretty much the same skill, though. He’d be proud that I am continuing the family tradition with his trusty paintbrush, I’m sure.
When I give people a commercial painting service, I tend to feel pretty good about myself. However, I can’t help but wonder if I am destined for something else with this paintbrush. I know for a fact that it is magical, but I haven’t been able to unlock its true potential. Maybe I need to find something different. What other uses for a paintbrush are there? I’ve heard that a sword can be compared to a paintbrush, particularly when it comes to duelling, but I’m not sure a paintbrush would make a good sword. Perhaps it is actually a magic wand? It kind of looks like a wand, now that I consider it. I should try casting some paint spells and see how that goes. Expect another update soon.
