Default wife does not like stripes

5 yrs ago I painted the airplane. I was working late and I needed to begin the stripes with something so I chose a simple angle and moved on. when my wife saw the plane see immediately said I don't like how the stripes begin on the cowl. she usually says that now each year. whatever you do, don't begin the stripes like I did.

I showed the picture to my wife, and she agrees with your wife, so your wife is right.

When the time comes to paint my RV I think the whole family is going to decide the design! But it is going to be red, that part is already decided.

p.s. my wife says you should have continued the angle from the top stripe through the bottom stripe and maybe curved it up a bit.

I had to see if this was chromosonal.

My wife says, "Eh, it's okay, I guess."

Default This is how my painter did it

Another idea to end the stripes.

It looks like the rudder pattern.

Default Wife approved

I was going to have a fancy scheme, checkerboards etc. and my wife said keep it simple. She picked this scheme:

Works for me
