Interior: Spindles or skimming. I can do both well, but hate it. Having ADHD I need to keep moving & fast. Those two always toss me off & unmotivate me for some reason.

Exterior: Got damn unsafe impossible ladder setups over concrete. I can hang off a steeple or crane by a little rope 200' in the air no probelms. Put me up 24' on a fudged up ladder set up though over cement and it bugs me BAD!


How about Painters Heaven though? What would your life in Heaven be like as a painter?

Interior: Just rolling smooth walls out with a 3/8" x 18" nap. I could do it forever. I get lost in the motion & go off to la la land. Love it!

Exterior: Odly enough... Doing multi coloried spindles. I love having to be so perfect doing straight lines on a 5 colorled set of porch spindles. If not that I would like to be doing the front doors. It's the #1 thing people see when they come knocking. Love turning the ugly into a piece of art.

Oh what a clique YOU are. An ADHD painter. Like that's something NEW?

Fellow paperhanger sent me a T-Shirt:

"They say I have ADD

But they don't understand......

OH LOOK ! A Chicken !"






I highly recommend :

"Driven to Distraction"

by Edward M. Hallowell and John J. Ratey

Not only does it put everything in perspective and helps get some problematic symptoms under control (without speed based drugs) but also allows one to realize its benefits, which are many.

One of the few books that held my attention long enough to finish.

I've been to painter heaven. Back in the early 80's I was working for a company and they sent me and another guy to do a photgraphic studio and offices. They were doing calanders at the time and had glamour models coming in for shoots daily. A one and a half week job took 3 weeks

Send me back pleeeease!

Watching Sev kick the poop out of TimHag then ripping your piercings out! (just kidding!...really)

I'd have well shaped female painters doing all the work, (for no pay because they love me) in a really clean and classy home that I could smoke a cigar in while I watch for a "Kodak" moment.

Hint: You're not supposed to drink it

We use a lot of oil here in the UK. It's slowly moving over to acrylic based products now though. The main reason that oil's been so popular here is the fact that, until fairly recently, acrylic based products haven't been able to withstand our climate (exterior).
