Clouds of Colour art

Gooood Morning! This week we have got sooo much done on the house renovations – I’m looking forward to sharing some before & after images in the next few days. These will be of little DIY’s or even room make-overs we have done.
Last weekend I stayed at Kaiteri Beach – the image below shows the stunning view from one of the little walks near the beach. Sunset there is magic.
