Obsessed with painting

After enjoying the retired life, Lena got bored. You can just get that much of lovely beaches, restaurants, wine and good friends until your fingers itch to do something constructive. Hence, Lena started painting. She got obsessed!!

Lena got such pleasure out of starting new projects. He children said 'mum, we love you, but we cannot have more chairs and tables in our house now, start painting for yourself...' And that she did.

The funniest things to paint were the oars from their old rowing boat, which now proudly adorn their pergola.

Lena's motto is SET (Simple Elegance Timeless). She decided to not let her heart rule but let her senses overrule any hasty colour decisions. And it's all ended well.

Over the years Lena has tackled many projects – here's a taste of them. Many have been completed with Resene testpots and a myriad of Lena's favourite colours.


Thanks to Lena.
