I think the largest challenge was created by using a low VOC paint. I've noticed similar struggles recently on other blogs. Many coats and hours of frustration later, the painting is mostly done. Because of the better-for-us paint, I'm finding that there is some problem with bleed through, especially at the corners and around the shower.
Today is a work on painting day, and I don't mean walls. I have a show coming up in November, and I'm beginning to feel the pressure to GET THINGS DONE. As I finish pieces, I'll share those with you too. The theme of my show is all about my grandma, how she's inspired me, my memories from when I was younger, etc. I'm really excited about it, though nervous too, as she'll see the show. I hope she likes it, and I hope you all do too.
