and it is oh so comforartble in my black checkboard living room. I am glad I went with all white leather.

I just hope it doesnt turn out to be a real pain to keep clean.

So how do you keep you upholstery and other furniture clean?

Sushi is the Fifth Food Group

I have so many memorable Sushi moments and have earen Sushi in so many restaurants around the US and Japan I could almost write a short book.

My current favorite is Otani here in Columbus. It was one of the first Sushi bars to open in Columbus, still owned by the same folks and still one of the best and most innovative in town,

Plus I can walk to the joint during good weather.

I just remember an 8 year sushi drought in Indianapolis from 1983 to 1991. No sushi in Indy. But a job I had at the time sent me to the "city" for six month job in early 93 and I probably ate a couple thousand dollars worth to make up for lost time.

I would have to say my best Sushi experience as far as presentation and quaility was in the city and my worst sushi experience was also in the city.

Ann Arbor Michigan had a really good Sushi restaurant but I cant remember the name.

BB:

I didn't used to like sushi, but have wised up in my old age! Our favorite place here in Denver is the Sushi Den.  Must not be alone in that as the place is always packed.  I like, of course, the tuna the best. Also can get a good soft-shell crab roll there.  I also like unagi--cooked eel.

Dug Out and Ready to Grill

 

BB,

That wall's looking great!  Answers my question about taping.  I'm still anxious to see the room, with your new furniture, when you're all done.

Man, I would love to see your house!  That wall must look incredible with your furniture.  (I can't remember which colors you said you used in your room.)  Did you just use different sized rollers for the squares and rectangles, or do you have to tape off the areas first?

Believe it or not, the two colors they used on that wall are almost exactly the colors of the otter's flippers and feet...and so would be two that I need for the table.  (Saw the metallic effects you were talking about.)

Tell you what...next time I get bored, I'm writing you to send me to some websites.  I've been on the computer all day looking at this stuff.  Playing with
the Sherwin-Williams color visualizer is too much fun.

Bar-B-Que and the Blizzard

You can get your acrylic stater kits at Utrecht. I bought an ex-gf one as well as a for couple of nieces and nephews. Comes in a nice wood box. Or you can buy your paints by the each if you like.

The winds have fianlly started dying down and tomorrow may see some sunshine. Ill cook my steaks after I shovel all the snow.

Just might have to rough it and sleep by the fireplace tonight.

Sherwin WIlliams has a nice website with an online tutorial section which might be helpful it would give you a clearer picture of colorwashes ragging and sponging techniques and how to mix glazes etc.

Here is their link

lowes or sherwin williams to find your furniture paint, specifically irredenscents.


Ohhhhh.  I was thinking about how much it was going to cost with all those little bottles.  I'm an idiot...didn't know they carried that sort of thing.  God...that will be so much easier and I can get exactly the colors I want.  Still looking forward to checking out Utrechts.

I hadn't even noticed your grill.  That does look pretty brutal...LOL...really, LOL.  I've been whining all day cause the temps didn't climb out of the low 60's here.  Kinda puts that into perspective.

Another idea would be to go to lowes or sherwin williams to find your furniture paint, specifically irredenscents. they sell ready-mix glazes in the metallic patina's and you may find it less expensive.

I have a lot of shoveling to do tomorrow. it still hasnt stopped snowing though it has let up a bit.

Impasto or knife painting


I had to google those.  Beautiful stuff, but I was thinking more about just finding various ways of "mooshing" thick paint around a canvas.  Thought it sounded like fun and would give me a sense of acrylics, colors, etc. before making any serious efforts to paint.  To that extent, I guess I don't really need a book.

People at Utrecht seemed nice and helpful, thanks for that suggestion.

Hope your steaks turned out well.
