True Colors, Shining Through. And Taste?
After Elena Agostinis Patterson painted her gray house orange (and purple and yellow and green -- with dentures in a glass decorating the bedroom shutters and a toothpaste tube on the bathroom ones), a funny thing happened to the traffic patterns in this languishing Catskill Mountains village.
Drivers took to veering off Main Street onto Hill Street and making a beeline down Cranberry Road onto Ms. Patterson's winding driveway through the woods. There they would stop to gawk at the Technicolor apparition before them, some even hopping out to wander the property, ogling the house.
