 hi sarah,

it's nice of u  to  b  concerned about how others feel about your color
scheme.
u  shouldn't worry about whether someone likes your colors or not. u  like
them,then that is all that counts.  u do not owe anyone an explanation and
do not worry about someone else's patience.  u  do your thing.

  Subject: [Chat] choice of house paint colors


  I received an anonymous letter today from a Charles Village neighbor
regarding the paint on the outside of our home.  Apparently this
well-meaning neighbor thinks our current painting project looks "terrible"
and like a "gas station!"  Please let me explain:



  I live at 3049 Guilford Ave.  Joel and I have been in the process of
painting our house red, white, and black.  I would be hard-pressed to find
anyone that would find this color combination offensive.  When one paints
correctly, one uses a primer.  To paint red on the outside of one's house,
one must use a pink primer (white primer will show through the dark paint,
even after three coats).  At the moment our project is not complete, so we
have an amusing assortment of pink primer and red & white paint on our
porch.  While this might not be pleasing to the eye, it will look beautiful
when we are done.  WE ARE NOT DONE YET.  PLEASE BE PATIENT.



  And please feel free to stop by any time to help us finish this ambitious
task.



  Best regards,

  Sarah Andrew Wilson
