The Sunday Post 2.8.2015 Edition

Wow. that painting nearly did me in…and I have only “finished” 2 of the 3 rooms. Rolling is so messy and the clean up is oainful. I did get some really nice, crisp edges, though, so I am pretty happy with that. The problem these days is what to do with the paint thinner after you’ve cleaned your brushes. I think I have to get the city to come and pick it up because it is a hazardous material. I used to just throw the brushes away if I used oil-based paint…I may go back to that method, as expensive as that sounds.
