Art Lovers!

Jim Hodges 2Jim Hodges 3 If you are looking for something to do and want to get out of the house, now is a great time to visit the Walker Art Center. I had the opportunity to view an exhibit there yesterday with one of my clients. There is something to be said for the feeling you get walking through a museum… the clean, crisp surfaces, large spaces and high ceilings that showcase amazing pieces of art that extraordinarily talented people created. I saw is the Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take. It was invigorating to see the use of interesting materials, the intricate detail and the genius use of light throughout the entire exhibit.

Tip: I hope you can find time to take in this exhibit and trust me when I tell you that you should say, “YES!” when asked by the man (or woman) with the flashlight (exhibit worker) if you want to see the other side of the wood room. It will blow you away!

Not All Paints Are Equal

color story 2We are so excited about Benjamin Moore’s newest paint deck called “Color Stories”. All the colors are drawn from nature and have a rich feel. What makes this paint deck different from the others? The colors are made by combining 5-8 other colors without the use of black or gray. In doing this the paint feels “very rich, complex and “real” – as just one example, a gray would contain blues, greens and browns, just as you would find in a smooth river stone.” Color StoryThis paint deck has 240 amazing colors to choose from and all come in pint size samples. Due to the technology that goes into this “full spectrum” paint deck these colors are only available in Benjamin Moore’s Aura paint. Though it has a slightly higher price point you won’t be disappointed with the end result.
