I love this incentive to be bold and think outside our traditional “colors”! I thank you for your continued sharing.

Outlandish? I guess you're referring to the colors of the door, walls, molding. Lovely! My wife and I repainted our house. We decided to let our granddaughter pick the color. She likes yellow, and bright. We went for it. The first week after the paint job I didn't know whether the neighbors would cast us out. But they liked it! Now that bright yellow seems almost sedate.


My wife and I painted our house orange a few years back. Many positive comments came afterwards. Click here to see a photo of it with a papier-mâché giraffe in front.

During September, 2015, a 12x18-inch print of this photo was exhibited at the Washington Printmakers Gallery.
