Yeah! Hard to believe, but this is the same building with the wood facade removed and the front painted. I would have preferred to keep the original red brick, but since the bottom had already been painted blue, the only feasible option was to paint it all. I think the gradated terra cotta colors work with the original brick work at the top. The concrete pillars will remain unpainted. The lettering for "Light of the Soul" has been ordered and will be installed on the horizontal concrete next month. I also plan to do something around the windows - not sure yet - maybe awnings or maybe some scroll work with mirror tiles. We'll see. Below is a close-up of the bench. I like the lotus flower. Glad to be off the very tall ladder. Next, inside walls will be painted.
