Serial skirts

skirt1a
Painting during our renovations is definitely not gratchy (see previous post with stream of consciousness and some new words).

But I do have to take a very deep breath and just get stuck in—I have the whole house to paint, including new windows and doors, architraves and skirting.

Zen and the art of painting skirting boards

The skirting boards are the most fun to paint. I love the sticky smelly enamel paint. I love the gloss coat and the durable nature of the surface. I love the zen-ness of painting the straight white line—fundamental, simple, dynamic yet peaceful, powerful.

This painting, I predict, will take me a year at the rate I am going (don’t tell Chris).

There is serious material for a [blog] serial about painting skirts.

  1. Dear Deidhre, Hello from us here in Port Macquarie.

    Beau has tried to contact your Mother several times by phone but has had no answer so far. Could you ask her to ring us or will you advise us as to the situation. Thank you, Tricia Philp.
