Cabin Blues

We never thought our new cabin would give us the blues, but it has.

So many of them.

This many, to be exact:

Porcelain Vase?

Norwegian Night? (could go for one of those)

Jellyfish Blue? (didn't know they were blue)

Isis Wept? (DAMN that's a great name)

Twinkle Twinkle? (seems kind of depressing for that name...)

Lake Henry? (where?)

Artistic Blue? (aren't they all?) Marina City? (sounds so very, very blue)

GOD I HATE PAINTING. Even just a tiny little bit of brand new trim. Especially when you don’t know what color you’re dealing with. And don’t want to cut out a piece of your old trim to get a sample (although, in hindsight, we could have, and should have, just done that).

But, now we have a new friend in the Arnold ACE Home Center. His name is Matt, and he works the paint counter. And he is happy to help you one, two, five times in the same weekend.

STEELE BLUE.

STEELE BLUE.

TA DA.

No more painting. Seriously.

Time to get to the “vacation” part of the “vacation home.”

One thought on “Cabin Blues

  1. Marge Wisniewski says:

    Only an artist like you could appreciate the diversity and variety of blues available in the universe. Although I might be tempted to bathe a room in “Isis Wept”. Who names these things? Positively poetic! And I am pleased to know that Arnold has a hardware store. Kind of comforting to have some signs of civilization nearby. Enjoy your vacation weekends!
