My name is Ivan Sokole. I am a professional house painter from AZ and an art enthusiast.

Ivan Sokole

I have been working in this industry for more than 16 years and after creating and running a successful business painting houses, I decided to bring that success into the online world and share my knowledge and experience with a larger audience through this website.

Although, I have gained quite a satisfaction providing service to my fellow Arizonans (or Arizonians I am not here to argue). It was nowhere near the potential of servicing not just the whole country but the whole world.

Thus, I took it upon myself to create this blog and write about anything and everything about painting, and paints. I hope you find what you are looking for and find browsing the website enjoyable.

Also, don’t hesitate to ask questions or contact me with any other requests.

Ask me anything you have regarding your paint jobs and make sure to include pictures I will do my best to answer and help you with them. shoot an email to

How can I help you?

If there is one thing that I learned through all these years working as a painter, is that painting is actually not hard. Anyone with a bit of agility and who doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty in quite a literal sense can paint. 

It doesn’t even require loads of experience, it does though require you to be very diligent and patient. 

Besides this blog was mainly with this very point in mind: to help you to paint with or without spray paint.

I will be covering all sorts of topics from spray painting guides to information about paints and their ingredients, and how best to use them. 

I will be reviewing some of the equipment I use, and sometimes the ones that I plan to use. 

It doesn’t matter what you are looking for whether a new kit to try or a guide to using what you bought. Perhaps looking to learn to paint, I will cover it all to the best of my knowledge and experience. Below are the things you can expect to learn from here:

  • Learn how to use a certain tool, method, or technique
  • Understand the uses of paint for different materials, and surfaces
  • Discover and learn things you did not know before, to carry out your paint jobs
  • Gaining information about tools compared to one another
  • Learn how to choose the best spray paint for your desired job
  • Gain the confidence to do your future painting jobs with sprayers and more.
