done!

close up money clip/bullet shell texas star

close up

front porch entrance

so finally took proper pictures of the finished entrance that i did for the phoenix commotion.  when you are standing in the doorway looking out and the sun is shining...the bullets get all blinding, its a cool effect i hadnt anticipated.  the colors are off a bit not quite so dog doo doo brown as is shown in photos.  its subtle.  the grout was gray cuz dan said that is the best for uv protection.  you know me, i would have preferred more pop (another bullet shell pun, it never ends i'm finding).  

anyhow. believe it or not. i am happy with this.  more so than the shower.  you can see all the photos of the entrance work here.

seems there is about 2 weeks left, plumbing and attic insulation as well as the tedious little things.  not sure how much more i will be doing on this job.  i feel way way way behind on my own life/art.  i'm gonna give it a try to keep working with dan/phoenix commotion as it'll be time to start working on a few houses from the ground up.  hard dirty work laden with poison ivy, skeeters....snakes and who knows what else.  i'm really a wimp truth be told and menopausally more hot than normal. we will see.  gotta earn the bucks and see if i can make an offer on land and git my own place going.  its all up in the air right now.
