Me Mops and Me Brushes

Boy, do want to know what is intimidating?
Painting a 27' swath of dark blue and purple on a white wall.

gathering supplies, taping and adding plastic really make the actual painting downright thrilling and invigorating


I found out very quickly that painting feet instead of inches is a very different experience.  On top of that using wall paint is like painting with cement after working with high quality acrylics.  I had to teach myself in situ how to blend wall paint with a roller and a 2.5"brush.
