Default Hello From Southwest Virginia

Not to be confused with Southern West Virginia. I'm an opera singer / painter, (I know I know.) I've been painting for a long time. I generally work alone only because it's hard to find good help. Being an opera singer, you have to be able to create your own schedule for many reasons. So the past couple of years, I've been trying to run my own painting business with some success. Anyway, I've been lurking for a while. I like the community of this forum and the available information. I've picked up a few things here and there, so thanks to those who have unknowingly given me some advice.

And Happy Halloween....

That's cool. East Tennessee as in Knoxville area, or JC / Kingsport / Bristol area? I'm about 10 miles from Bristol in Abingdon, VA. Thanks for all the welcomes.

Welcome, Cecil. Do you sing while you're painting?
Did you know Mike Rowe studied opera?

Only in the big houses when nobody is home. I did know Mike studied opera. He has a better gig now if you ask me.

Interesting..BTW, welcome Cecil!

It's funny, I really didn't care for Mike Rowe as a local network television host here in the SF Bay Area, but I got to give him credit for his tenacity. I actually think he's at his best as narrator of "The Deadliest Catch". The Ford commercials are kinda lame.

I live near the little town of Mtn City, wedged up in the north east corner of the state. Out in the sticks for sure.
I work a lot over in NC, Boone / Blowing Rock area. JC/ Kingsport occasionally.

Ah yes, I'm very familiar with Mountain City and go to Boone / Blowing Rock often. Pretty country over there and nice drive along the way.
