I have to admit I love removing the wallpaper. It is an intensely creative process – scoring, spraying, scoring, spraying, easily, slowly, to protect the wall. I worked hard on one corner of the living room and came to this bottom layer on this wall. In my Aperture photo editing program I was able to bring up the colors that had been dulled, and this is a very beautiful haunting pattern, between 80 and 100 years old, possibly older. This room has so much feeling as does the place. Tomorrow night we are having a rag-tag pizza part in the new house for just a few people – there are no chairs and few lights. Can't wait.
