Why is it that I enjoy painting structures? My mother also was content as she painted our home in Pullman. Her father-in-law, a commercial painter at one point in his life, taught her. So is it genetic?

I know that I experience a sense of accomplishment as a walll, a section, a side is completed. I know that this work is very different from that which provides my livelihood and security. Also, I understand that I cannot afford to have someone else do this for me. And, I delight in touching every surface of this beloved home of twenty-two years.
