Is there any way to find a painting contract online so we can print them out?

You are writing a contract because the lady wants one? Is this how it's going to be-write one if they want one?

I recommend writing a contract every single job you do, even if it's a $300 job. If you don't...you'll have all sorts of problems, especially when they say, "you didn't say 2 coats, I want 3" or "I'm not paying you, you didn't do any work for me" or "you said it would take 3 days, not 5..I'm not paying you for those extra days"

and the list can go on, and on, and on, and on, and on

write a contract because it saves you and the customer hassle

In the states I work in, it's Law to have a written contract

I think it's law in every state to be licensed and insured and work on a legal contract.
