Default Hello from Seattle Area

Hello All,

This is a fantastic site for someone like me to learn from the Pros. I am a shade tree painter but try to do my best at it. I know I will learn a ton here.

I am also guilty of a paintbrush fetish.

John

I am self taught and often scary. I liked the idea of sitting under a tree while someone else painted but after trying it I remembered I was a one man operation. No worky so good.

I am a disgruntled ex-airline pilot (40 yrs old after 16yrs) who paints interiors only. I do all my work by word of mouth and enjoy what I do. This forum is great and look forward to learning and hopefullly contibuting.

Well please feel free to pick our brains. I have contracted but the bulk of my experience has been on the supply side. I have been a Sales Rep (I prefer Coatings Consultant) for several paint manufacturers and brands. You have a really great supplier up there in Rodda Paint if you can find a store with the experience you can feed off from. I recommend finding a good sales rep, one that looks at partnering with you rather than making a living off from you. Ask around the paint stores to see who they recommend for a rep.

A shadetree mechanic is the well known term.

It's the guy with his tools in the trunk of a 89 tempo who will come to your house and fix yer car so you don't need to pay a mechanic with a storefront business.
