Painting Again

I am painting our sitting room.

I have painted all the rooms in our home, except where Susan and I have hung wallpaper; i.e. the bathroom and two different papers on two of the kitchen walls.

My favorite, still, is the living room. I had a vision to paint this room red.  It’s “Poppy” from Benjamin Moore and that’s me in the photo!

 And here’s another photo of the room featuring Nadine, aka The Cat Nadine or Queen Nadine!

Ah, but I digress.

I just finished priming the entire sitting room and I do believe the new color may bring me as much joy as the living room color.

For some reason, as I painted, I thought of this photo of Tara:

And then I thought of all the beautiful brides I have photographed getting ready for their wedding:

And then my mind really started to wander–and wonder; and I thought of painted sunsets:

Susan is at Jury Duty today (She’s been there all week!) and I can’t wait for her to get home see the progress I have made in our sitting room. Here’s a photo of Susan from yesterday right before she left for Jury Duty:

Here I am early this morning. The old color is Benjamin Moore “Nutmeg.” The new color is C2Paint “Garam Masala.”

Do you like to paint?
I would love to hear from you!
