Default Novice from Minnesota

Well, to start off, I've only been painting for a year. I got a job at a hospital in maintenance, they asked if I could paint, I said yes and here I am.

I have not received any training from anybody on how to properly paint, but I do get a lot more compliments now than when I start, so I must be doing something right.

I found this forum a couple of months ago and have found it very helpful. I have some questions which will sound pretty basic to most of you, but any advice would be extremely helpful. I hope I'm not stepping on any toes by joining.

Thanks for you time.

Welcome to PT. I like your honesty about your experience, or lack thereof, in painting. It's the newbies who show up all full of themselves acting like they know it all when they really don't know much at all who have a tough time here when they first join. My first few months were pure hell.
