and welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum.
I too am sorry that you are away from friends and family. That must be difficult. Painting sounds like fun, and will give you a change. I hope it all turns out as pretty as it sounds. We just had a thread on painting your house colors that aren't depressing. Sounds like you are in store for some bright colors. I hope it is cheery for you.
You have come to a good place, everybody here is very kind and compassionate. You will be glad that you joined us.
Take care, have a great day.
Best wishes, keep posting.
