Odds and ends

Remember the picture that I took of Chelsea and her dad?  I decided to posterize it and make a watercolor portrait...

I had to make myself stop tweeking it and now that I've got it framed I see several areas that still need work. Grrrr.

Speaking of things that are almost complete, here is a shot of the screened porch.  All that is lacking is ceiling fan and outlets.  Then it can have the final inspection...

Of course, last but not least, here is the new driveway...

If you look closely, you can also see the newly installed ridge vent.  You may notice, no johnny house now.  The last thing that has to be done is a vinyl fence  which will be installed to hide my garbage can from view.  THEN, it should be complete. 

Don't know which were Odds and which were Ends, but there you go.

Be back soon.

The portrait is very nice. Love that technique anyway.
The porch is wonderful! Bet you can sleep out there and safe on A/C in the spring and summer!! The driveway looks really really nice. Doesn't look like the place I was in April!!! So much prettier!

Of course I actually meant you could sleep on the porch and SAVE $$ on the cost of running the A/C. I went to the eye doctor today and my pupils are still dilated...I can barely see...sorry about the typo.
