OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I painted this picture of this cute Frenchman riding his bike… Took the idea from the wallpaper I used in the bathroom… Not sure where I will hang him yet…but, still have additional things to look for… curtains?…or drapes?… or a valence?…

Pictures or mirrors for walls?…

Throw pillows?

End tables…(I have an idea there!”…

The fun is in the hunt anyway… so I’m still on the look out for the perfect touches

I feel I do have a start… and the “change” makes me feel so good!
