Tagged by my Polish friend Joanna. Me in an afternoon chamber music playing in Jakarta a couple of months ago (now I have longer hair, and different glasses). Can you notice that Joanna's got a nice camera (and good eyes behind the camera:-))

Here's another 'imaginary flowers' set :-) This time the chosen color is red. Let's see what color I have in mind for the next flowers :-)

These graphics were actually ready a few days ago, just before a series of big earthquakes hit my country in the western and southern Sumatra. I was at work when the first earthquake struck and even in the capital, 600 km away, the tremors were felt and the building where I was in swayed, causing panic. Considering the magnitudes of the earthquakes, several tsunami warnings were issued though finally cancelled not long after. Today is the third day but I still receives several alerts from the Indonesian Meteorolgy Agency. The Jakarta Post reported there were 11 temblors rattle Sumatra this Friday morning only. I just hope this will stop soon!

Happy Friday and have a nice weekend!

Via decor8 I found out about - it's really cool, at least that was my first try to decorate a room virtually. If you love experimenting with colors and 'things combining' (I don't know what the right term for it ;-)), it's really worth a try.

Unfortunately it's only free for one project. It's still fun in any case. If you do log-in to the site, look for me ;-) My screen name is artmea.

This is a screen shot of my first try:

Below are a few new graphics that I use for the frontpage of my website and the about me page. To be very honest I don't know what kind of flowers they are ;-) Inspiration just struck and I happened to love the result. Until I can make a complete set and give it a 'home' in my main site, you can download the graphics here. If you like them and want to use them please don't forget to provide a link back to . That's all I ask :-) Have a great week!

[ download the graphics, right click, choose 'save as' and save it on your own hard disk and upload them to your own server. please don't steal the bandwith by direct linking the graphics to your website, otherwise my website may crash. thank you :-)]
