I have a big 22 inch metal paint guard that I use when painting baseboard. IT'S A LIFE SAVER! I just run some tape along the carpet that's next to the baseboard (to keep the fibers down) and then use the guard above the baseboard on the wall, to protect the wall while I paint along the baseboard. It saves me tons of time, because I don't have to tape off twice... just once on the carpet.

"PASTELS BECOME WATER".....ZARIA FORMAN’s photorealist paintings of the ocean and remote, icy landscapes are painted by hand—quite literally using her fingertips to render marks in paint and chalk, rather than brushes. Forman uses layers of paint to make the distinctive shadows and ripples that make her works of art look so real. Her landscapes capture the beauty of randomly formed icy landscapes.
