Desert Mosaic Update

I've started laying in the tesserae on the first desert mosaic. It seems to be coming together well. My only worry is that I will need more variety of desert-colored stone. If there wasn't several inches of snow on the ground I'd go beach combing or climb up sugarloaf and gather some stone.

When I was cutting up some of the stone I had on hand I found one tile that was a deep rusty orange. It was only a 6 inch tile, but I got as much usable stone out of it that I could. I used almost half of it to do the large swath that you can see in the photo.

I may end up visiting some of the tile stores around here to see if I can find more desert colors.
