Painting is his life and he loves to make people happy with what he does.
Scott is one of our lead painters and he has been painting for a few years. Before Flying Colors, he learned to paint with his family’s company. That is where he says he got his passion for painting. His favorite memory while painting was a night job painting a bank. He says that is where he learned to be extremely precise in his work because every detail had to be perfect. Scott’s best friend is his cat Jeffery (or Jeffurry as he pronounces it). His favorite snacks right now are carrots and Honey BBQ Fritos. In his free time, Scott spends time with his family, plays video games (right now he’s playing Warzone), but mostly he just paints. He is currently painting his grandparent’s house in his free time. “Painting is honestly my life,” he said. “I’m a passionate painter. I have a love for my work. Perfection is my goal.”

He says every day is a good memory and he has fun working on ways to improve his craft. Jesus is an easy going, hard working individual that strives for a challenge to do the best work that he can.
Chris is one of our lead painters, and he has been painting for 15 years – 7 of those with us. He has 4 kids, 2 dogs, and a beloved red truck. When he isn’t painting, Chris loves hiking, hunting, and fishing – anything to get him outside. He says the Flying Colors is an enjoyable place to work.
German is one of our lead painters, and while having been with us for only 3 years, he has been painting for 20. His favorite part of painting is working with customers, getting to know people, and figuring out what they like. He loves every part of painting and does his best to treat each customer and coworker with honesty and respect. When asked why he likes Flying Colors, he said, “It’s a good company to work for. Dustin’s taking good care of us.” We love German because he always comes to work with a smile and a happy hello for everyone he sees. Not only does he do good work, but he’s fun to be around while he does it.
