Finally got around to painting the foyer today. You can see the photos here. The red was Jason’s choice, but I like it too. It’s hard to get used to such strong colors, though. I think my art will look good with the red background. The paint is Devine Color Cayenne — it has a touch of brown in it but not too much. In the can it looks kind of salmony but dries a deep red — it’s not a color for the timid. Anyway, this is the second time we’ve used the Devine paints, and I strongly recommend them. They are really a joy to paint with. Thick and creamy, high-covering, and no paint stink.
Decorating the foyer will be tough. My electric piano will have to go there, but it really won’t look good. And we have nothing else to put there.
