Default Painters are everywhere!

While on a visit to DC over the weekend, I took a guided tour of the US Capitol. And as everyone is admiring the beautiful architecture and what not, I'm chasing a bunch of painters to get a shot. My non-painter friends thought something was definitely wrong with me

How cool would that be for the portfolio.

Homeowner: do you have any references?
Painter: yea, I painted at 1 1st Street in dc... It was just a small job...

We bid on some work at the Capitol Building earlier this year for the Capitol Dome Skirt Project. During the contractor walkthrough we were taken on to the roof of the Capitol Building, talk about a view.

Those painters in your pic look like Architect of the Capitol painters. Those are in-house guys that do most of the work on any interior painting project in the capitol, house and senate office buildings. Not a bad gig.

Nice, roamer!

Yeah - the painters were in-house guys I ended up chatting for a few minutes with them.
