Paint Samples

Last night I went to Home Depot to scope out some board to have cut to paint on. I couldn't help visitng the paint sample area, which is not a place I need to go. I always have the urge to paint a room. Of the things I need to do in my house, painting rooms is not the most pressing.

But look at all those pretty colors... all the pretty colors...

I resisted.

Today I had some board cut to paint on. Hopefully I will be able to satisy those urges to play with color with small amounts of paint in the studio instead of gallons of paint on the walls.

Oooh, I am glad someone else shares the urge I always have when I look at paint charts! :-)

Once I gave in and came home with a tin of the most gorgeous cobalt blue and proceeded to move everything and paint just one small wall with it - where I could sit staring at it and absorbing the delicious colour.

These days my partner watches carefully to make sure I am NOT picking up any paint cans and that I am really just staring at the pretty colours! :-)

Enjoy playing with your colours!

I love all the names too. So fun. If only it were less trouble to paint rooms!
