Diane Hoeptner started an amusing conversation in her blog about painting clothes. My wardrobe comes from Goodwill. I love being able to wipe my hands or brush on my clothes if I can't reach the paint rag. Since I paint only in the mornings when a caregiver is here for my handicapped husband I put on the paint clothes (usually surgical scrubs) when I get up. I often drop by the snack bar here at the Wrinkle Ranch (Frasier Meadows Retirement Center) to grab lunch before heading back to our apartment. Most of the residents know about my avocation but some eyes widen in astonishment. Afternoons and evenings I look just like the other people who live here.
