Friday night friends A & J gave me an early birthday present (and delicious passionfruit cake) at a little soiree at J’s place.
My birthday isn’t for a few weeks yet but it was a lovely surprise.
This is Frida Kahlo - Mexicos most celebrated female painter. I love line art. The artist is Ariel O’Connor. And check the frame colour. Fluro Orange. Hot!
What’s so lovely about art as gifts is that it's something that you'll always have – thanks sisters - Love her. And now you need to tell me where I can find more of this womans work!
We’ve had a bad run with weather trying to complete this paving but with some moments of sunshine on Sunday, I even managed to paint the inside step of the stairs and parts of the slab wall to finish off the stone.
|Once the tiles are stained, they'll match the paint on the slab perfectly.|
It's so invigorating to see instant results. Painting's satisfying work in small doses.
The paving is completed. We’re going to leave it to its own devices for a few weeks and then seal it.
|One of it's many washdowns. This is pretty much the colour it will be on the final seal.|
They look lovely as is anyway. Now it's time to paint the black part of the stairs. The joys of timber houses...
