Friday Wisdom – Painting

You know you’re Baroque when you’re out of Monet …

What does a painter do when he gets cold? Puts on another coat.

Why don’t painters wear sweaters? Because they already have two coats.

How much gas did the painter put in his van? Just enough to make the Van Gogh.

A painter I know has his work in a local gallery.  He did the baseboards and the trim on the doorways.

Today we’re actually painting two rooms because we didn’t like the color and why not add three days work to our work schedule?
Here’s the color in my new office:

Still have to do the trim and then I can move the bookcases into place.

    When I moved back to San Diego, I was excited my new house had 10-foot ceilings throughout. Until I had to paint the 10-foot walls. Ugh! Much joy and happiness in your new home!

  3. A very nice paint colour; but I don’t envy you the task. Interior painting is not my friend. But I liked the painting jokes! 🙂

  8. Your one-liners made me laugh. Some of us are artists with paint, some with words. You, my friend, are both. Ah, blue is a calming, restful color — let’s hope you don’t fall asleep every time your’e in your office thinking up all of that ‘wisdom’ to give us! 😉

    Love your “artistic” flair in today’s post. Having new wall colors never hurt anything.

    • I wasn’t liking the color that was there and better to do it now before I fill the room with stuff. We artists have to have the color just right you know.

    Decide whether you want to paint the bookshelves to match before you stock them.
