houston chronicle article about the phoenix commotion

just found out that last sunday the houston chronicle posted an article about dan phillips/phoenix commotion and the house they (and a little bit of me) remodeled.  unfortunately my scanner couldnt scan the whole article either vertically or horizontally so here are some photos of the piece:

they didnt post the beautiful windows that artist linda judge did for two of the bedrooms and one bathroom.  by the way her fan page is here.  go there and whine and tell her to post photos and info about her work will ya?

nor did they post the kick ass bedroom that neko did. (and unfortunately i can't find any photos of that right now).  here is her blog, she is writing a book about her experience as a home builder with the phoenix commotion.  dan has a book coming out too!  Dan's website and all about everything is there, check it out!  great crew to work with and i feel lucky i have had an opportunity to work with them all, and hopefully again!


Wow Paula!! How great is this!

No....I think it had less to do with 'remodeling interior' with reclaimed materials? I am just happy the house got some recognition since people worked their asses off...most more than I did for sure

Exciting to have such a great organization recognized and your tile work included. Nice article.

now i remember another reason i stopped blogging...i have been dickering around with trying to upload 2 photos with links and captions for longer than i should.  much easier to just do it elsewhere.

for anyone who wonders...i'm hopping back on the min wage work thing.  went back to the house remodel job and trying to make enough money to subsist while sales are slow during 'back to school' time.  its good.  i reckon.  its hard, its fucking hot.  i'm just trying to work with my self and being present and taking it one day at a time.

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…
