Ray Chapman and I have had a good time for several decades with his teasing me about my lack of hand lettering skills. I started in the business about a half century ago, when everyone... well, everyone except one!... relied on hand lettering as an essential skill set in this line of work.

The ribbing considered my probable ignorance as to which end of the brush went into the paint, the soft, hairy comfortable end or that hard wooden shaft. Although the main part of my business the last few years has been painting graphics on awnings for awning manufacturers, we've continued our tease-fest.

Today... I put the wrong end of the brush into the paint! Raymond was right... although I do think I'll eventually get this figured out!

LOL Dave, I remember well.

Dave, you can still use that pointed end to make dots!

I hope all is well.

Peace,
Bob

It's a sign of newbie-ness... I think it's also a sign of old age! [Wink]

It's the sign of a true artist -- searching for new meaning.

Sometimes a sign of the old artist is searching for meaning...
