Hello all.

      My name is Brian I am a professional house painter. I used to paint in water colors and draw in charcoal 20 some years ago. I went back to school 10 years ago and 6 years ago I started working in IT.. I hated it so now I am back to painting houses. I am learning to faux paint to offer more to my clients. After messing around with a project I realized how much I wanted to learn to paint in acrylics and oils. I am having to relearn a few things but a lot I still remember and/or use in my work.

      I would like to thank Nolan and Dennis for this great site. I have watched a lot of your videos but have many more to go to catch up. I look forward to your future episodes. 

Brian J

Hi Brian,  :welcome: to Paintbasket!  I'm glad you found this site.

 I know you won't regret it, you're sure to love it here as much as I do.
