Ah-Fresh Paint

Time to paint the house. Mostly done as I post this. Took a while to get started because of rain, heat, and other obligations/fun. It sure looks nice now that it's done. Just wish it lasted a few more years between paintings. These latex paints sure beat the oil-based paints of my youth. Painting buildings around the farm was a protracted effort. Clean-up was a real job. The youth of today that learn how to paint won't know what they missed.
Note: The main color of our house is yellow, not the version of salmon that my scanner chose.

Great page!! However, please clarify the "Rum Raisin"??...are you drinking it or painting with it?

Love that you journaled and shared about this! We are getting ready to paint our house too. I think I will do a page about it too! Thanks for the inspiration!

I want to see how the whole house looks---I know I liked all the sketches and the writing but I miss seeing what it looks like when it's done..

Great journal page! I've just done lots of painting, but on the interior of our house. The exterior is next, but it won't be with a paintbrush as much as with a sprayer!! Love the drawings you did to go with the page!
