The Friday Photo
A weekly photo celebrating art, spontaneity, and community

Some people think environmentalists abhor the use of electricity.
Here’s photographic proof that we don’t.
This HVAC unit is outside the window next to my desk.
Due to the duct work, my office is the coolest room in the house, so when I
am working I can turn the temp up and run it less often (saving energy, as environmentalist are prone to do).
However, I can’t stand looking outside and seeing it. And I don’t want to put up blinds or curtains, which in the end will reduce the natural light where I need it (bonus-I don’t have to turn the light on during the day usually).
I called our heating and cooling guy, and Mel said he’s never had anyone ask if it is OK to paint their AC unit. As long as I keep the fan clear of paint, he said I can paint it.
So, friends and readers of Rural and Progressive, got an idea for a design (or best techniques if in fact you have done this too). I am not much for drawing or painting, but I am hopeful someone will have a simple idea that I can manage or build on. Let me know in the comments section here any other way we are connected if you have a design idea.
