These are two of my favorite paintings:
Langlois Bridge, and Fishing Boats on the Beach by Vincent Van Gogh Two more favorites are: Terrasse Café, and, of course, Starry Night. Van Gogh liked to put sky blue together with creamery butter yellow. So do I. When we put steel siding on our house in 1990 we picked out a pale tan color. We had a steel roof put on as well. Steel roofs are great in snow country. Heavy snow comes off a steel roof like ice cubes out of a hotel ice machine. I picked out blue for the color of the roof. Our roof is REALLY blue. It stands out from the gray and brown roofs in the neighborhood so much (I'm not making this up) that airplane pilots line up on our house on their approach to our small airport. Over the years the constant wearing of ice across the steel wore the blue right off our roof. It was looking pretty shabby. Time to paint.
Even when there were heavy storms the guys didn’t have to get on the steep slick roof to shovel off snow. They didn’t have to get on the the roof that one time to remove the debris from the shattered chimney(I'd give a link to this story but it seems to be lost in cyberspace). But now I had visions of Hubby ending up head down in the shrubs with a paint bucket on one foot.
