Having fun

I took a picture of this yellow home with a dinosaur about 3 years ago in the middle of nowhere on our road trip to Los Angeles.


Every time I look at this scene, it reminds me, that ‘having fun’ is one of the most important things in our life.


I made a search and found this home on the list at pico-dwelling among other small unusual homes. They provide ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures, just in case if anybody is interested.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day,


New medium


I was so excited to get my Brusho crystals, that started painting right away without testing them. I liked the vibrancy of colors and how they flow.

Painting with Brusho is very simple. In two words it’s just “sprinkle and spray”. Crystals can be also diluted with water in a palette, but it seems, that colors change a bit, when diluted, and give you a different impression.

I was following a tutorial by Joanne Boon Thomas, which can be found on her site, along with two others, here: www.brushosecrets.com/brusho-lessons

I enjoyed watching how she works and was highly inspired to start creating, but went with a smaller size of paper and vertical layout to make it mine.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend,

This year we are having wet winter here in California. It seems like the drought is over: lakes and reservoirs are full of water and hills are green, which makes us happy.

Enjoying simple pleasures – looking at these green hills.
