Sampled from Holland - beautiful old Dutch house in the Northern Netherlands.

Also used a refresh snapshot of photograph of Trinje's grandmother posted in Yesterday's photos.

Have MS Paint back on home computer and will try to use Paint.net more and more. It is like riding a ten speed instead of my little Paint trike.

An Easter egg of sorts, here today. No candy inside, though.

Postscript - image darkened a bit - it was too light on BlackBerry and on home monitor:

It seems to be Dutch Day today, just been looking at Sweet Irene's lovely new header!

Look, if you've put a picture of Trinje's Grandma on here, I can't see her lol But lovely work nonetheless.

So different from the ballerina's! Perhaps they are practising inside the house.
I like the 'barcode' piece too but as you know I have a thing about them.
Days are getting shorter here, I actually saw a sunrise and a sunset in the same day which goes totally againts my genetic makeup.

Thankyou for your comments on my blog, I always look forward to reading what you have to say and often sit here laughing (while everyone else looks at me strangely.)

I thought I was looking through someone's patio window doors. This has an architectural feel to it. Tell de professore I enjoyed his visit to my blog last night. *grin*

i'll look forward to what you create next with new paintbrushes

Here I am.
On my *best* behavior.

I'm looking for Geertje, but no luck.

However there is a little 'trompe l'oeil' going on here.

I see an image of a house, which can also be a wall and the barcode like image, as a gate. The sharper images are posts or a birch tree trunk with a blue blanket. Okay, I'm reaching, it's the end of my day.

Glad to hear you are back in paint and exploring and learning new tools. Looking forward to more beautiful works.

It's very lovely, John and I think the colors are just splendid. What a wonderful way to use Trijnie's picture of the old house.

I am glad you've got MS paint back and see what a difference it makes.

I love , by the way, how the darker blue is offset against the lighter pastels.
