"I am tired of pickets"

Our painter extraordinaire Stephen, who has carpentry and design skills way beyond mere house painting tells me yesterday "I am tired of pickets".  We have a lot of them.  He is painting them grey-blue-green now....but our 2 decks are done!  What an awesome fourth color, it is just this pretty dark bit sort of in the background.  You can see below what he means, ahem, about the pickets and our fence, which I am guessing he finishes today.

I started taking that picture and Penny, well, anyway.....

Favorite colors on these mugs, just outta the kiln!

House mugs! Cool!

Is Stephen tired of pickets because they are such a hassle to paint? We have mostly stone walls or near the ocean, privet, which is one of the few hedge plants that grows in salt air.

The house is looking great. You certainly picked the right colors!

Reminds me of painting the posts and railings on my mother's deck. From sunup to past sundown and STILL not finished! If she had a fence, I think we might have felt defeated.
