Default Greetings Gentlemen (and Ladies, too)!

Hi There,

I have been lurking on this site for awhile gleaning what information I could. What a wonderful wealth of advice, info, opinions out here. Well it is a better time than any to identify myself and join the fun!

So why an I here? Well first of all I love to paint. I have spent many an afternoon and weekend painting with my father-in-law, who has been a part time painter for longer than I have been around! I have painted my own homes and the homes of others. My steady and sharp cutting skills have gained a reputation and am often called up be friends and family just to do that for them. I am sure I nowhere near the expert you all are who do this day and day out, but you gotta start somewhere.

I have spent the past 4 months painting for people to raise money (over $3000) for my upcoming mission trip to Myanmar. I have done a variety of jobs - mostly interiors, but have done an entire home, restained a deck, painted 6 panel doors and a variety of other jobs. I have learned a lot along the way and now that I have met my goal, I have decided to turn this into a side business. I still have steady demand and would like to see what that grows into. Not "quittin' my day job" any time soon, but I want to present myself in a professional manner, offer a good value to customers, and see how it grows.

So here I am, head full of ideas, but so much to learn. It seems the more I learn, the more I realize I don't know! I hope I can learn plenty here, offer what I know to others just starting out and contribute to this community in a positive way.

My business is going to be a little unique as I am also going to be offering design services as well as producing and installing custom wall graphics for residential and business customers. My background and current employment is in graphics and printing. I have access to a large format inkjet printing technology that can produce stellar wall graphics.

Let the fun begin!
