Do you watch 106 and Park? I tore myself away from today's show, which was featuring newest American Idol J. Sparks (whose father played defensive back for the Giants for 8 years), to offer some quick math.

To wit, The Raymond Theorem (rT):

The Raymond Theorem postulates: when divided into squares, any canvas comprised of greater than or equal to four such squares will take a minimum of four days to paint, given that: a) no more than one set of squares is painted per day, and b) that every such set includes only non-adjacent squares.

As is pretty clearly illustrated by the computations outlined in red, the rT does not take into account so-called "finishing days" but rather is a measurement of what practitioners of the obscured box technique call "primary days."
