May your life be blessed with Love and Harmony,

The Khoo Kongsi is a large Chinese clanhouse with elaborate and highly ornamented architecture, a mark of the dominant presence of the Chinese in Penang, Malaysia. The famous Khoo Kongsi is the grandest clan temple in the country. Wikipedia

In the theme of summer. Today’s sketch of the day are beach huts. I was in St Kilda, Australia last year and took loads of photos of these colourful beach huts. Each one is unique and colourful, they really make the beach look fun and pretty.

This is a reblog. First published on Jul 12, 2013. Since I’m still on the beach, I thought why not keep the beach theme. I will be back soon xoxo

Sketch of the day 82: Sketch of Budgie

Budgies are from the parrot family. This particularly budgie is native to Australia and is not a pet, although I know budgies are popular as pets. I don’t think wild animals or birds should be kept as pets. They are so much more elegant in the wild.

This sketch is a repost but I thought you may like it πŸ™‚

I travel a lot, and this sketch is from my travel to Yogyakarta. It is the royal coat of arms/emblem of the area. I love it because of the wings. It reminds me of my own logo.
