Default Hello from Wyoming

Greetings,
I have been painting in Sheridan for 7 years. I am an institutional painter(mostly), meaning I paint for the local hospital and nursing homes in the area. I do occasional residential and commercial, but keep most busy working for the hospital. Prior to moving here from CA I was primarily a paperhanger doing high end residential work. Not much call for wallpaper here, so my focus is now painting. I have had to get up to speed on all of the zero VOC products for the hospital applications. I look forward to sharing my experience, and learning from all of you.
I call myself The Painter Lady because that is what everyone calls me- they rarely remember my name (even though I wear a badge) so that is what I go by.
Thanks in advance for shared wisdom.
Erin (The Painter Lady)

Thanks Sean- still learning my way around. Testosterone is a wonderful thing in moderation. After 30 years of dealing with it on the job, it doesn't bother me at all. I've earned the respect of some pretty tough, macho guys. I can give as good as I get! I get along with almost everyone as long as they don't get in my way.

Not exactly on the coast anymore Chris, but thanks for the welcome. Thanks to all of you.
Sean, I hope I fit in, I know this board is not populated by a lot of women, but we're here, and tearing it up. I love the challenge!
Tim. thanks for your reply regarding Peel Bond. I love the product, just didn't know how it would perform after rain. Weather has been weird this year.
Looking forward to getting acquainted with all you pros out there (testosterone or estrogen dominant- makes no never mind)

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

If your not you can steal some from the net and post them as you, you would be surprised how popular you can be.

You guys are hysterical. I knew this would be coming... If you work hard, you stay in shape. I am happy with the way I am at 50- so is my husband. I love it when I run across a big bellied guy who can't fit into the same space that I can- especially when he thinks he's the better "man". I'm not interested in being "popular" but some professional friends would be nice.

We have a few on this board and the ones like Chris that can dish it out with us are appreciated.
Remember, don't take any gruff of these swine.

Erin, I see you are from Wyoming, I should have said "the wild west"
Most of these guys are from back east, and a lot of Canadians lately, I was starting to feel out numbered!
Although I rarely paint anymore, I remember what it was like being a woman in the field!
