A year ago I respectfully repainted Beacon's dummy light-- see this post -- and it has weathered well, only sustaining a few minor scuffs and scratches. I still had the cans of leftover paint, so this morning I gave the base a quick touch-up. Felt like I needed to follow up, maintain what I had started. It didn't take long. Turned out that some early-morning paparazzi caught me, from a distance, in the act, but then all was peaceful.
