Interest in painting is founded on a many-fold basis. In the first place painting is done for appearance. It bolsters home pride and satisfaction. Too often children who grow up in farming communities are attracted to village and city because of the beauty of urban homes, parks and landscapes. The same attractiveness and beauty found in the city can be realized in the country if all buildings are well-painted and kept in good repair. Paint provides color and freshness, and the artistic use of tints and colors makes the home attractive and interesting.
