My very late Extraordinary Mondays post

So I was going to post this last Monday but due to the storm in Perth (which made international news by the way!) and the lack of electricity supply to my house, I had to postpone it. Anyway, things are back to normal and here I am.

It was two weekends ago now that Khoa and I spent a frantic few days redecorating an apartment and getting it ready for the rental market. Here's what it looked like before we started on it.

And after about four full days work with loads of help from rellies and many turns of the Allen key, the apartment now looks like this!

Did you notice my paintings? I didn't want to let the cat out of the bag so I kept rather quiet about the reason why I was doing so much painting suddenly. I wanted to unveil it once the apartment was done. It was great using the empty apartment walls as impetus for painting. I never would have done so many in such a short space of time. If you were really sharp, you may have also noticed that there was one artwork I hadn't introduced to you.

I feel like I've achieved greatness in my own little world and am proud to say that I kinda like how they look on the walls. I must say that I was nervous. I was anxious that the paintings weren't good enough or people would think they were crap. But in all these worries, I got to a point and said to myself that it didn't matter what other people thought. It mattered if the painting mattered to me. Full stop. And if other people appreciate and like my art, that's a bonus and a pat on the back.
