Default New in NC

Hi folks, my name is Brandon. I've been painting for about 1 year now. I live in Greensboro, NC. I paint and clean out rental units after tenants leave. This is how I got started with painting. I'm not so big on the cleaning as i use to make more money as a full time janitor at 16, but I fell in love with the painting. Right now I'm just honing my skills, and when I get a vehicle, I know of a couple of old timers out here who will take me under their wing, lol. I know painting is for me when I dream about Painting, lol, it's the only job I've had that I look forward to or take pride in. lol The guys I work with take pride in their painting too, but I feel like there isn't much more they can or will teach me. They like having a cleaning slave around. But I'm gonna hang in there and I'll probably always paint, at least for fun. I have an obsession with trying new brushes, but all we use is duron paints, maybe switching to porter soon. Well, thats enough for now.

Ant brush will work better when your not using Duron Paint.

Youy may want to get away from the people you are working with and work for a painting company where you can learn. Also, stick around here and read threads, read threads, read threads and read some more threads.
Welcome from Pittsburgh.

Welcome to the site Brandon. Always keep an open mind, sometimes life's little lessons lie in how you act/react, learning from others mistakes, etc....
