Good to see someone from Texarkana, as my sister lives on the TEXAS side in the Twin city. I was raised in DeKalb. I visit there once or twice a year and try to find shops with decorative painted items. I get different ideas from different places. Always something to keep me going on to the next project.

San Antonio, Texas---
Because I loth painting, I prefer to be in a State of Inebriation. After listening to explanations about what paints work with what primers, I am usually in a State of confusion. Once I have paid for the paint my wife picks out, I am in a State of Denial. For those who paint on canvas and bring things to life, I am in a state of amazement. But please let me State for the record, I believe paint in all its various forms should be left to professionals who love their job.
So Stated by Doug (Louisiana)
Its a good thing you stated you are from Louisiana... my husbands name is Doug too and your reply made me think he had snuck in here and written that!
I try not to go into lengthy conversation about technique with him about my painting... he has his hobbies computers/car models/cars and I realize that when he starts conversation with me about his hobbies it all sounds Greek to me. :)
Have a great day and thanks for the chuckle!
