P for Painting in ABC Wednesday

A painter is a painter and painting is painting, or is a painter a painter?
A painter is a handyman painter when painting the floor at our summer cottage yesterday. I would call the color "the master of the house´s nightmare", where everything will become visible on the deep red floor, and washing is not my favorite.
The tool is also a little bigger than what I normally use, but I love paintings in large formats.
A painter is also a painter when making paintings in formats not suitable for every apartment and only for gallery or institution walls. This was 100 x 150cm (acrylic on canvas) but became overpainted later because another way of express the motive turned out more interesting. Maybe I will return to the original idea this summer. The colors used so far was not bad.A painter is a proud painter too, when discovering a good working result "hidden" in my daughter´s apartment from the day it was finished. Now the soon to come mother and father have moved to a new place, and suddenly I saw my work at the wall. Immediately I had to shoot an iPhone photo of it.
The Painting, called "the first day at school" (acrylic on paper, 36 x 40cm), I made some years ago, but have not had it in my gallery before today.
P is for the Painter´s Paintings presented in My Gallery on the ABC Wednesday = P.More P expressions can be found at ABC Wednesday Round 4

Du har valt samma tema som jag - att måla och fotografera det är livet det.
Fina motiv du har.

That's a great painting and your floor must be fantastic. I did my floor last week with transparant paint. I did it on my knees. Afterwards I was pretty stiff. Have a great week!
