It is alright. Over the years I have seen so many painters logos and websites that I have become numb except to the exceptional lol. I don't mean anything by it but to me it is a bit plain but alright.

I agree with Sean. One other thing you might want to think about is, How will it look in black and white? Ever plan on advertizing in the newspaper? I'd also limit your colors to #3, as printing can get expensive with multiple colors.

Think for the future when coming up with a logo. You want a versatile logo that will print/display well in every way it will be used.

I would drop any background and max two colours that can be easily converted to b/w or gray scale and still have impact.

I am not sure what the background is but anything that resembles spilled paint probably shouldn't be part of a painter's logo.

Agreed. Less is more with logo design - colors and layout need to be simple. No backgrounds, ever, unless its a solid bground and simply fills a simple shape. Outlines (trim) should be left out as well. Look at 100 best logos on google, you will see simplicity and minimalism.

I was a design major in college. So I hope you take this post for what it's worth. I have no intention of being too critical or being a pompous jerk.

That being said. I don't care for the first one. Second one is much better. Probably the best of the three. Third one just ok.

When designing you logo keep these things in mind. Make it memorable. Bold can be good. But you cant go wrong with a minimalistic design. Three colors max. Two probably better.

Designing a good logo can be difficult. Trust me. I trashed over 10 before I came up with "the one". Good luck.

You will know it when you see it!

This may seem obvious but from what I've observed it must not be. Just make sure people can tell what you do from a glance and a reasonable distance. There are half a dozen guys around town that have logos on their rigs (and yard signs) which are so detailed, cluttered, or undersized you can't tell what they do unless you can get close enough to study them for a few seconds. Same with the vehicle wraps. Done well they can be very effective. Many, however, are so over the top they are counter productive.

I also agree about the logos displaying spilled or dripping paint. Could never understand why that would inspire someone to call a painter.
