Who We Are

Mixing it Up-Palette and People

Anybody who does professional painting as a business is in the business of mixing colors.  It takes many different kinds of colorants to achieve particular color.  Nature provides us splendorous beauty (especially during the New England autumn), but no such color as “Grandma’s Sweater” or “Alligator Alley”.  The color that you see on your walls […]

Party Time-Larkin Painting Style

It’s hard to believe that summer is over-perhaps not officially, but vacations are winding down and there is a definite chill in the morning and evening air.  Time is passing so quickly.  We all know it’s a good thing to slow down and savor the moment, and we all know how hard just slowing down […]

A New Treasure

So far 2014 has been an exciting year!  We’ve had a new addition to the Larkin Painting family!  Emerson  (a.k.a. The King of Trimwork and Amazing Crew Leader) and his wife just welcomed  their healthy, baby boy into the world.  They are delighted and so in love with their new bundle.  We are lucky to […]

Fourteen Years! Part One

Taking Care of Each Other

There are absolutely no words to describe the sadness we all feel.  The tragedy in Newtown is unfathomable.  I still have not been able to get my head around it.  Of course all of our hearts are breaking.  I wanted to check in on our little community to share some information and resources to help […]
