It's a turquoise master bedroom! Yes, it's done.

The master bedroom is done (in terms of painting, if nothing else). Bedroom, closet, hall, and of course the master bath, which was done weeks ago. This is what it looks like as of tonight.

Below is not exactly a close-up, but it shows the texture and depth of the colors a little better:

Next up will be the guest room, which essentially will do most of its duty as a small office/studio space. Warm dark brown, hot chile red, and bronze. Probably not until next weekend, though.

For now, I'm beat. It was only the two walls shown in the upper photo, and the edging of the ceiling there are elsewhere, but I'm not really "back" yet, and days like this remind me of that. Every single thing I did today wound up delayed, pushed back, or halted entirely, so I'm running really late on this and on everything else. At least the chicks are doing well ::knocks wood superstitiously::. They are the liveliest, most confident bunch we've ever had, and they're eating like crazy.

Clarence comes over tomorrow to go over a few things related to the next stage of the plasterwork. We have to pick a pigment, order the mica, and generally get everything lined up for them to get started. At some point, we need to get down to Santa Fe for something other than medical stuff and see about the next round of materials purchases: Water heater? Interior doors? Flooring? Who knows? There's a lot. So we still need link shares:
  • Wings's PayPal account, for donations to the house fund. [As I said last night, my best estimate on what's been raised so far on this $30K stage is $7,500, leaving a balance yet to raise of $22,500. $7K+ of that is going to have to be reserved for the septic, and labor's eating us alive on the daily, so that's going to mean a lot of juggling.] If that link doesn't work, it's tied to his e-mail address: wingsoftaos [at] newmex [dot] com. Also, that link? It's a direct one now, rather than via the "Donate" button, so it should work better.
  • His Web site, for sales (always preferable, and the base upon which the whole project hinges anyway, along with paying our day-to-day living expenses) — and just by the way, he's got some really incredible new works up now.
  • Our Amazon wishlist, which contains Lowe's cards that will allow us to purchase some materials more cheaply than here in town, and also allow us to divert the extra funds to labor costs.
It's all cut and paste again. I thought I was battling only allergies but it appears to be something else, so I'm extra-tired, and also incapable of much in the way of concentration at the moment. For now, much love and gratitude to everyone.
