Storm skies of Bandipur, Nepal

Recently we returned from our incredible motorbike trip in Nepal, more you can read on our travel blog www.travelonger.com. Beginning of April the weather was quite rainy, sometimes with storms.

Bandipur village is a lovely couple of streets village on top of the ridge something like 1030 m above sea level and the views down to the valley is magnificent.

The day we arrived the storm was on the forecast, but we were lucky to arrive before is started and we witnessed from our guesthouse room  the whole process of storm developing and skies formation. Unbelievable experience….

New glass beads from Tibet

We are back from our great motorbike trip in Nepal, doing lots of unpacking today. In Kathmandu I bought some colorful handmade glass beads originated from Tibet area. Amazing colors of this beads made me think to create a new collection of necklaces and couple of sets of earrings and bracelet.  Getting lots of ideas, need to start right away.

Acrylic collage project

A few months ago I tried some simple acrylic collage project, to make a simple but modern wall decoration.

Free acrylic paintings I cut into pieces, after deciding on size I played with boxes of different colors  matching.

Choosing for red/blue/white wall decoration was quite difficult.

   

When additional boxes were painted and final decision of colors was made, I glued each and every piece for an artistic background paper. The final result is framed with thick and straight wooden frame of black color and glass, so its getting a deep  colors. Quite happy for the results. Looking at the collage for a couple of minutes is quite interesting experience.
