The porch is very long and narrow. I think the painting helps to make it look less so.
It was fun to try out acrylics. I imagine they would be much more fun to use if I had bought a better quality paint. Using very cheap paint made it difficult to mix colors and get what I wanted. Now I understand why it is important to buy the best materials you can afford. If the materials don't perform well, it is a recipe for discouragement and giving up.
I won't be giving up any time soon. Wayne was happy with the results and is ready for me to start painting something for the other wall! I guess he will have to go shopping again for more wood panels! And I will have to shop for more paints! Yay! : )
