HERB BENHAM: A fresh coat for Sequoia Paint Co.

A local paint store is important. It’s like a hardware store or lumber yard, each lending a town grit, texture and lyrical architecture, linking one generation to the next.

I’ve always been a fan of Sequoia Paint Co. I’ve bought good paint in other places too, however paint stores are like barbers. You find one, you settle in and when you go in for a trim, you don't have to tell them you want the No. 2 clippers because they are already fishing them out of the drawer underneath the mirror.
